And as a sub-plot, Eddie acquires a bag of pills that make him crazy smart, allowing him to abandon his craft of writing and pursue a seat on the US Senate. Huh?
But the hair is where they really lose me, because when Eddie is just normal Eddie his hair is a mess, but once he's in smart mode his hair is always immaculate.
|Eddie on the left? Either mentally deficient or a total genius.|
Eddie on the right? Douche.
Shouldn't it be the other way around? I've met some smart people before, and they usually never give a shit about their hair.
Conversely, I've met plenty of dumbasses who devote a lot of attention on how their heads look.
|"Fuck your comb."|
Eddie really was a douche, though.
The first thing he did after he took that initial pill, and I mean the very first thing, is fuck his landlord's wife.
And even though he spends the majority of the film hopped up on magic drugs, he still manages to make these really obvious mistakes, like forgetting to pay the loan shark who threatened to skin him alive.
And what kind of under-the-table street dealer loans a hundred thousand dollars to a total stranger?
