A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III

Charlie Sheen, Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman star in this surreal comedy about Swan, a ladies man and graphic designer in the 1970s, whose life is thrown into a heartbroken tailspin after his girlfriend dumps him. Not knowing whether he should try to win her back or not, Swan's despair manifests itself in feverous nightmares of past relationships. Written and directed by Roman Coppola (son of Francis Ford, brother of Sofia, co-writer of Moonrise Kingdom).

More of a doodle than a fully formed idea, though not necessarily less enjoyable for it.

A precious, arid thing, Glimpse arrives pinned to Styrofoam like a prize arthropod.

At best it is a mildly diverting goof with a charmless lead performance. Its underlying misogyny leaves a sour taste.

A film is a terrible thing to waste.

With such an in-house cast of extended Coppola family sparklers, one would think things couldn't go too wrong in the comedy department, but they have little chance to oil the wheels of a creaky script written around Sheen.
