This was a really weird comedy based on the director/writer's life Harris Goldberg. Loved It!

PWC pleasantly NUMB!!!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I laughed hysterically in some parts. Mostly laughing at myself. I am a Person With CFS/ME (PWC not DPD!) and totally relate to Matthew Perry's character in the movie. Although CFS/ME is very different and not what this guy in the movie has, I relate to that he seems intent on figuring out what is going on with him, and to find some one who knows what he is talking about (so funny in the movie), people running away from him and his problem, including his family's negative reaction to him and his problem (again, some hysterically funny parts). Doctor's not knowing his condition. His feeling of being used by the medical profession (more sarcastic humor). His experience of ending up with unsuitable girlfriends who try help him (I've got tears from laughter by now). Even his compulsive shoplifting (which I doubt is part and parcel of DPD and certainly not part of CFS). I relate even to his business success despite his problem, and even his business partner, who is nice enough, but there's no real communication, no real connection to nourish his soul in the one "normal" relationship he has. He's alone with his problem. There are many things that are different between CFS and this guy's disorder, but his experience is part of my experience in this society and my family with an unpopular, often derided, health problem, that is not properly understood. The movie gives important glimpses into the overall angst of the condition as well as the sufferer's desperate efforts to resume a "normal" life. Yet the movie is absolutely comical and a pleasant watch! Well, and a tear jerker for me (because it's a mirror of my life!)."
