Star is shown practicing magic on her own without needing a Trickster Mentor like Glossaryck to manipulate her into learning like before. They play around with an old electroshock machine, tear down ceilings with their bare hands, and scream at each other constantly in order to achieve mental health.
This isn't entirely Murphy 's fault; the script appears to suffer from a malady typical of literary adaptations in that there are too many characters crammed into the two-hour time span for anyone besides the protagonist to possibly be fleshed out.
He's thoroughly disappointed when he goes back to being a scrawny teenager after returning to Earth.
But let's get back to Ms. What happens from there I'll leave to the film.
The film suffers from two lessons learned time and again by Wes Anderson: There is plenty of room here. Burroughs himself is the kind of child who "liked to boil my change on the stove and then shine it with metal polish", and kept his hair "perfectly smooth, like plastic".
