The two of them manage to make the most of their captivity, which some inspired hi-jinx, but after a time Sarah begins to feel the emptiness of their existence.

A big plot hole aside, this was an enthralling adventure, brought to life mainly by Samberg and Milioti crunching up the scenery and spitting out both laughs and sobriety, while reflecting on the nature of existence. Some good music to roll it along and, of course, J.K. Simmons, who always leaves a mark.

I highly recommend this one; I might watch it again. There is a mid-credits scene that is very worthwhile.

Flytrap rating: 9/10
