    The Worst Person in the World

    Renata Reinsve's electric presence isn't enough to overcome a frustrating script that cares less about developing her character's interiority than peddling tedious Gen-X satire (yoga, slackers, and feminists are targets) before collapsing into a sincerely maudlin (and entirely unearned) final third that shifts focus away from her.

    CODA

    Saccharine and profoundly artless, capturing the aesthetic and tropes of an early aughts ABC Family Original down to the letter. It may be far less offensive than Green Book (as far as terrible Best Picture winners go) but its insipid, made-for-TV direction makes Farrelly look like Scorsese.
