    ★★★½

    I was reminded of Rosemary's Baby as the 'sophisticated' family planned Hunter's life (and blended her up some iron-rich smoothies). A good sense of tension throughout, but the ending, complete with an upbeat song, fell flat for me.

    Me to my husband halfway through: "So this is just Star Wars?"

    The candy-coated catharsis I needed.

    So bland as to be farcical. The movie completely steers away from the Ayn Randian hot takes of the book, but somehow that doesn't make it better.

    There is literally a plot point where he.... doesn't know.... which fork..... to use at a fancy restaurant!

    QUITE THE PICKLE FOR THIS FISH OUT OF WATER.

    Also, the lead character is a human thumb.

    I mean, you're going to watch it.

    But why are we watching this?
