The Peanut Butter Falcon

The Peanut Butter Falcon ★★★½

While the chemistry between the three leads is undeniable (particularly between Shia LaBeouf and Zak Gottsagen) the story at times drifts aimlessly drifts along like the make-shift raft that our trio uses to travel down to meet The Salt Water Redneck (an excellent supporting performance from Thomas Haden Church). Dakota Johnson's character change is kind of jarring as well - one minute she wouldn't trust Shia LaBeouf with a house plant, the next she's joining the guys and swinging into the river and laughing it up like they're good friends. Honestly, and this is nothing against Johnson who is fine in this movie, but the love story element feels forced and unnecessary. Nice to see Mick Foley and Jake "The Snake" Roberts getting small roles though.
