Paul Dano is a man stranded on a deserted island. As he’s about to kill himself, a corpse (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up. But this is no ordinary stiff: his farts can be used for locomotion, his mouth spouts clean water and his body has additional unusual applications (hence, the title). This starts out as a wacky, funny premise, but their freaky friendship slows into lots of verbal intercourse about love (what else?), belonging and other tedious existential debate. This feels like a Charlie Kaufman concept, but lacks the genius to carry it off. A highly-original and rollickingly-weird premise that gets bogged down with too much message, repetition of the same joke and a lack of follow-thru on the imagination.
