    ★★★★

    I can't believe how much I loved this movie.

    It's Groundhogs day, but with two people essentially. The heart behind this thing is what really caught me by surprise, and the framing device of the day being repeated being a wedding offers a whole slew of comedic possibilities.

    While the film is very well made, and Christian Bale absolutely transforms into Dick Cheney, the whole narrative is really jumpy and told so much so through the meta, fourth wall breaking style that McKay used in The Big Short that it made me feel like an idiot for not knowing what's going on.…
