Part NBA Jam, part Pepsi commercial, part Bad Grandpa. I was surprised how much I liked it. I’m normally a Nick Kroll fan, but he and Tiffany Haddish were just too much in this. Also, if this isn’t at least nominated for an Oscar for Best Makeup then Suicide Squad’s should be taken away.
Fair warning: This is not a love story.
In the vein of Annie Hall and Eternal Sunshine for the Spotless Mind, this film is quirky, funny, and real. Well, as real as a film with a dance montage and animated bluebirds can be. It is refreshing to see a "romantic comedy" that doesn't have the traditional romcom ending of the opposite party coming to their senses and running off to regain the relationship that they lost earlier in the film…
I saw this because I missed my showtime for Searching. I didn’t expect much going in. I have never seen any other Predator or AVP movies. But I knew it was Shane Black at the helm and I love that guy! The movie was entertaining, especially the band of misfits. However, at the end of the day, I still want to see Searching.
