    I cannot emphasize enough how much ***fun*** this movie is. This is the kind of fun that a lot of big-budget movies right now are pretending to be without any of the substance this movie has. Absolutely note-perfect blend of action, humor, romance, and drama. And it offers the ever-elusive GREAT ending. Great acting and cinematography (one place westerns are frequently unmatched, to be honest, and this is no exception), and FANTASTIC music. All-around winner, can't wait to rewatch.

    There were parts of this movie I really enjoyed - Alana’s dynamic with her family was hilarious, and the whole bit with the escape in the on-fumes-in-reverse-moving-truck was great. But there were also long stretches that I don't remember because I was bored and tuned out. Overall I think it was probably decent but over-hyped and might benefit from a rewatch.

    God, I hated this. Like. So much. The dialogue was awful. AWFUL. "Let's see if these moves fuck." How do you look at that in black and white on the page and not realize it's idiotic? This is the kind of badness that has contempt for its audience. There was nothing memorable about a single character. Every actor was wasted entirely, including Evans, who proved his worth as a snarky villain in Knives Out, but his lines were so fucking…

    This movie is so much fun it's unreal.
