    This movie is beautiful and uproariously funny. Emma Stone and Olivia Colman will get plenty of plaudits, as they should, but Rachel Weisz's sharp performance holds this movie together.

    Lady Gaga is great and the energy of the first 20 minutes is gripping, but the male gaze overwhelms the rest of the film.

    The Mission: Impossible movies today serve basically the same cultural role James Bond movies did 30 years ago, and they are both superior to the current Bond films and much less dated/self-serious/over-sexualized.

    I desparately wanted to like this film but it is very average. Decent performances from Lucy Liu and Pete Davidson.
