January 20, 2007 - Twenty-four hours after seeing this movie, I'm not sure what to make of it. It's a 2002 horror flick starring Angela Bettis (Girl, Interrupted), Jeremy Sisto (Six Feet Under) and Anna Faris (from the Scary Movie movies). Lucky McKee wrote and directed.

The plot can basically be summed up as follows: Unable to find the perfect friend and/or mate, a young woman decides to make one out of human body parts. The young woman is named May. As a child, she wore a patch in order to strengthen a lazy eye. Her little classmates rejected May. So, mom passed on her favorite doll, Suzie, so May would have a friend. But, Suzie is in a glass case and May is not allowed to take her out.

When next we see May, she's a young woman living on her own and working at a veterinary clinic. When she goes home, she sews her own clothes and talks to Suzie and the rest of her now very large doll collection.

Enter Adam (Sisto). May is attracted to his hands. Adam has made his own creepy little horror flick, but even he thinks that May is just too weird. Their relationship doesn't last long. May then has a one-night stand with her co-worker, Polly (Faris). May likes Polly's neck, but she doesn't like it when Polly quickly takes up with another woman. May does, however, like that woman's legs. You see where this is going, right?

Overall review: ** As I said, I'm not sure what to make of this movie. It's interesting to look at - in a freak show kind of way - and it's not boring. But, I'm not sure what the point is supposed to be. Maybe that no one is perfect? You have to take the good with the bad? Having an imperfect friend is better than having no friends? Don't play with dolls? I don't know.
