When Annie (Meera Rohit Kumbhani) returns home after a short trip, she finds a carton fort in her living her room and her boyfriend Dave (Nick Thune) inside that fort. Only that he claims that he can’t find his way out of the fort anymore, as it’s somehow gotten bigger and mazelike on the inside. After Dave forbids her to enter the fort, in case she got lost as well, Annie calls in a few friends for help and finally decides to go in and get Dave out. Much to her surprise, though, it turns out that Dave isn’t having a mental breakdown, he’s actually telling the truth – and now they’re all lost inside a maze that seems set to kill them.
Dave Made a Maze is sweet and funny and very well done. Despite a couple of things that I would have liked to be different, it’s entertaining and thoughtful from the first second to the last.
