When David was trying to see if the other person was wearing contacts while in the woods, whenever he gave a direction to point his eye (left, right, up....etc), the other character would move his eye in the correct direction slightly before David would say which direction to look. See more »
I'm going to do it with a knife.
Short Sighted Woman:
Do you want me to come with you?
I'd rather you didn't.
Short Sighted Woman:
Don't worry. It's strange at first but then you'll get used to it. The other senses are heightened, touch for example, and hearing.

The writer clearly has some issue to work through and sadly was allowed the resources to share this with an audience. If this is considered to be innovative cinema then the bar has been lowered to sub basement levels. This movie is not funny (as advertised), not clever, and not worth seeing. The acting was actually not dreadful given what the cast had to work with. I envision the author sitting at his desk trying to arrive at the most ridiculous premise possible, then constructing a script around it. Yes I get that this is an attempt to paint a dystopian view of societal relationships and expectations via exaggeration and juxtaposition. But why does the vehicle feel like a Road Runner cartoon with 20 ton Acme weights being dropped on the audience on a regular basis? If you want quality bizarre spend your cash on a Goddard movie.
