About the Movie
Dave (Nick Thune, Knocked Up), a frustrated artist who has yet to accomplish anything significant in his career, builds a fort out of cardboard boxes in his living room, only to wind up trapped by the fantastical pitfalls and critters of his own creation. Ignoring his warnings, Dave's girlfriend Annie (Meera Rohit Kumbhani, The Mindy Project) leads a band of oddball explorers (James Urbaniak, Difficult People, Kristen Vangsness, Criminal Minds, & Timothy Nordwind of OK Go) on a rescue mission. Upon entry, they find themselves in an ever-changing supernatural world, threatened by booby traps and pursued by a bloodthirsty Minotaur (John Hennigan, WWE champion John Morrison). Reimagining the classic 80’s adventure films with a modern comedic edge, the handmade fantasy world of DAVE MADE A MAZE comes to life with puppetry, stop-motion animation, and on-camera optical illusions.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: An episodic endeavor enlivened only so much by decent comedy talent dealing with absurdist situations in a hip deadpan that grows monotonous, with dialogue that too often sounds less-than-inspirationally improvised.
Fresh: A likeably goofy creative achievement.
Fresh: You won't come to "Dave" for the unpolished interplay, but you'll surely stay for its preposterously elaborate kid-crafty sets.
Fresh: If you're looking for something different - and mean it when you say so - Dave Made a Maze is a joy.
Haven't laughed this hard in a while!!
FUNNY FUNNY FUNNY and not to mention I've never seen anything like this. The special effects in the "fort" are hilarious. Best of all this is a movie you can watch with your kids!

Dave Made a Maze
Hilariously great movie, wonderful concept, great story about a person's struggle to find meaning, direction and purpose in life (at least that's what I thought it was about). I really want to reference a number of scenes here, but it would give away the multiple surprises that they offere throughout the movie. We laughed our way through the whole thing.
