Are you A.D.D. 'Juno'
Yes. I have A.D.D. And don't you ever call me fucking 'Juno' again.
That's who we should kill next.

I loved this movie. This is "The One" Feel-Good movie I've been missing since long time.
Each day and night after work or watching world and local TV news if you start feeling frustration because of stupidity of people, politicians, dictators, and pointless empty TV shows like the ones in this movie, you need something to calm yourself down.
This is a movie that takes all those rage and poison out of your mind and make you sleep well at night.
It is as satisfying as playing Doom in God Mode, just to shoot those Evils with that Shotgun or your shiny BFG9000, after those long, long meetings with stupid PowerPoint slide readers!
It is as satisfying as a long run in Castle Wolfenstein, bringing down those Nazis shouting Achtung, one by one, after a long night working after hours ... again!
It is as satisfying as scratching and slowly removing that crust off your healing wound. It hurts, tingles and your mind says stop, but you continue playing with it because feels so good!
This movie is like Daily Show on steroids! Take this movie as a medication to your frustrations and calm down.
