Neither his pedigree, nor his cast, nor his experience working with Wes Anderson was able to guide director Coppola through this irritating blend of whimsy and self-referential navel contemplation centered on advertising exec Charlie Swan (Charlie Sheen) as he struggles with mild substance abuse and dwindling self esteem after breaking up with a remarkably insipid girlfriend by self-indulging in some pretty obtuse break-out fantasies. Reality check, please.
