Plot Summary

Zia (Patrick Fugit), distraught over breaking up with his girlfriend, decides to end it all. Unfortunately, he discovers there is no real ending, only a run-down afterlife that is strikingly similar to his old one, just a bit worse. Discovering that his ex-girlfriend has also "offed" herself, he sets out on a road trip, with his Russian rocker friend, to find her. Their journey takes them through an absurd purgatory where they discover that being dead doesn't mean you have to stop living.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Wristcutters is quite a bit darker than most mainstream romantic comedies. As you might not expect, it's also quite a bit more inventive and far wittier than most mainstream romantic comedies. – Jessica Reaves, Chicago Tribune, Nov 3, 2007

Fresh: Wristcutters is a cut above most low-budget American indies, with something original to say about the human condition and an artful way of saying it. – Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle, Nov 3, 2007

Fresh: Croatian filmmaker Goran Dukic's debut feature turns out to be a sweetly grim lark: a road film through Limbo. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Nov 3, 2007

Rotten: Teenage suicide isn't that funny, and nothing in this movie changed my mind. – Stephen Hunter, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010

Customer Reviews

great, underrated movie.

As a big fan of Patrick Fugit's, I was expecting alot out of this movie, and I definitely got what I was looking for. Wristcutters was a sweet movie about a dark subject, and I think that was what I liked the most about it - the oddity of a love story taking place in a strange afterworld reserved for those who commit suicide. I think that you should go into watching this movie with an open mind, because what you come out with in the end is something charming and heartwarming.

Very Fun

This is a fantastic story told in an unexpected and fun way. The humor is understated and many of the jokes were funny inside your head more than laugh out loud, but that constant feeling of "this is funny" leaves you feeling like you have just spent the last two hours laughing hysterically.

Great Fun

I imagine the title turns alot of people off, but it shouldn't. This is fun quirky movie. It's not morbid, it's not profound, just fun.
