Consensus: Slight and unpolished, The Crystal Fairy is held together with Sebastian Silva's assured direction and a pair of strong, committed performances from Michael Cera and Gaby Hoffman.

Jamie and Crystal Fairy, though slightly exaggerated for comic effect, are still truer representations of gringo backpackers than I've ever seen on film.

It's a messy film, but it hits more than it misses, sometimes landing on something emotionally resonant.

Part drug comedy, part psychological drama, the movie is slight, but only superficially so.

The List

Silva fails to cook up anything more than unfulfilled potential in this half-baked movie.
