The technique used to write, "The Reason I Jump" (2007) (Facilitated Communication), and the techniques used in this film (Rapid prompting method) have been labelled pseudoscience by a number of scientific institutions.

A little pretentious with the name. It a cute little exercise in creating situations but it's not a story. The acting and dialogue was consistently cringe. Cinematography was cute but nothing special. The situations were pretty dull, the kid one had something to it with the unintentional existential questions (which was accurate), but the McDonald's one was just poorly directed.
Also that sound mixing at the beginning was distractingly bad.
