    Surprisingly still good! Performances are universally awesome and carry the movie. Segel is super charming! Sure, the aesthetic is mostly trapped in the conventions of early 2000s rom coms, but I do wanna shout out Stoller for the many moments in this film that go above and beyond. The sunset photography is genuinely great, the production design is fun and warm, the blocking is… existent, which feels special in 2022. I miss R-rated rom-coms. Lemme get casual f-bombs and Jason Segels hog as a cutaway gag again.

    Our children will likely embody everything we hate about ourselves and more. We will continue our obsession with mechanical “innovation” until every last one of us comes home from a job we don’t understand to a living room full of pipes. We will not escape the cycle of creation and removal, but we will see heaven. 

    First viewing, wanted to save this for a theater. So happy I did. Turns out those people saying this has the best sound design of all time weren’t lying.
