Don't Look Up

The Other Guys is a sharper, more well-rounded satire than any of McKay’s last three movies. Can’t believe the man who created one of the true comedic masterpieces of the 21st century would turn into maybe the most annoying filmmaker working today. Felt actively angry the entire two and a half hours of this, and certainly not in the way McKay wants you to be. It reeks with that smug "I'm so much smarter than everyone" humor of Vice, similarly making light of subject matter that absolutely does not deserve to be made light of by a rich white dude who doesn't have to deal with the kind of life-ending consequences of the people he's mocking. So gross, so tone-deaf the whole way through, and of course without a tiny shred of nuance or genuine wit to it. Takes the most obvious path at every turn.
