Live and let live, it’s as simple as that.
Sorkin’s dialogue is clever and rapid-fire as usual, but his direction is nothing to write home about. I also really enjoyed a few editing choices that drove certain moments home. The performances were all pretty good, although something about Eddie Redmayne’s accent in this sounded kind of weird. I had a good time, but I’m not sure I’ll be dying to rewatch it any time soon. 7/10.
(Watching this with the boys in Discord made some scenes extra-entertaining.)
As someone who gets second-hand embarrassment quite easily, I cannot imagine participating in this film, as merely watching some scenes made me wince. Regardless, it’s a pretty fun time, and I have the utmost respect for Cohen’s level of commitment. 8/10.
Some scenes felt a bit dragged out and even awkward at points, but it was still pretty enjoyable. I’ll love an over-the-top performance from Nicholson any day, and maybe I’m biased because of my love for The Shining, but seeing him and Scatman Crothers in the same movie made me smile. The fact that there were at least nine patients and I can remember the personalities of each is quite remarkable. 7/10.
(P.S. Eric, you should watch this. There’s a scene towards the end that reminded me of the last night at camp.)
This is probably gonna be one of my hottest takes but I wasn't obsessed with this. I’m all for a chaotic animated film but this was seriously one of the most ADHD movies I’ve ever seen, and I didn’t feel like there was much of a point to most of the shenanigans. I did enjoy the Mesoamerican art style (especially when it was included in little sight gags) and Kronk was hilarious - the himbo we all deserve. 6/10.
