Three friends (Colin Farrell, Christopher Walken, and Sam Rockwell) incur the wrath of a violent L.A. gangster (Woody Harrelson) by kidnapping his prized shih tzu in this black comedy from In Bruges director Martin McDonagh. Aspiring screenwriter Marty (Farrell) has a brilliant screenplay called Seven Psychopaths floating around in his head; unfortunately he's usually to hungover to make any real progress on it. Meanwhile, Marty's best friend Billy (Rockwell) has some great ideas for the story, but he's reluctant to offer input without invitation. A down-on-his-luck actor, Billy pays his rent by running a lucrative dognapping scam with smooth-talking Hans (Walken). Just when frustrated Marty begins to fear that all of his ideas have dried up, however, Billy shows up with an adorable shih zhu swiped from a quick-tempered gangster (Harrelson), and a desperate trip into the desert finds the ideas flowing like drinks at an open bar. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
One word: "Stupid"
Two words: "Really dumb"
Skip three - four words: "A waste of time"
That was two hours of my life that I'll never get back. The movie is obviously making fun of psychopath movies, showing the writer experiencing everything that he puts into his screenplay. The best part of the movie was the trailer.
dark humor is a great background for this absurd story about a story !!!!
synopsis doesn't do it justice . christopher walken was the glue that held it all together !! ....... if you like walken ...... which ..... I DO !!
