we have to make it before the previews
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I thought I was going to hate this, and I did! Disservice to the topic of sexual assault, and I really wished it had tonally leaned in a more serious direction. Fucking bummer. In a time where we just got I May Destroy You, this feels so dated.
I even hated Bo Burnham in this. *16-year-old me passes away*
I’m going to keep adding to this. Like the only violence we got in this whole fucking film was against women…
The more I think about this movie, the more I respect it. It’s of course a love letter to Nicolas Cage, but it’s also a love letter to buddy comedies on such an interesting, sweet level. I keep thinking about the scene where Cage + Javi are declaring that they don’t want to do a “walk-around buddy movie” and the camera pan overhead of them is just so perfect and cheeky. The new stoner movie of all stoner movies.
