    ★★★★½

    This was everything that I hoped it would be. Dark, hilarious, intense, suspenseful, and easily some of the best performances of the year.

This is also one of the most unintentionally bizarre and offensive movies that I've…

    ★★★★½

    Still the best comedy of 2016. This has cult classic written all over it. While not as good or as wonderfully weird as Hot Rod, it's still a fantastic and very well written comedy. The academy also needs to nominate this film for best original song!
