Unbelievable, Poorly acted, Poorly written, Slow, Excruciating

See it if You want to support someone in the cast.

Don't see it if You value your time. The way the head sort of “appears” to come to life while on the bar is the ONLY thing that comes close to interesting.

Entertaining, Quirky, Thought-provoking, Absurdist, Hilarious

See it if avant-garde, absurdness amuses you. Lots of funny bits. Fuzzy plot line . Multiple explorations of roles: family members, gender, worker etc

Don't see it if you like a clear plot and consistent characters.
