If I could give this one 0 stars I would. Ed is so bad and unbelievably ill constructed that it hardly holds together as a film. I don’t think 4 year olds would even find the humor funny.
I can’t tell if I really like this movie or if I just think I should. At one point Clooney’s character references Fauxmy (Faux Homey) as an industry buzzword in hospitality. I’m going to label this one Fart (Faux Smart) and go with a 3.5 and let it go like the stuff in my metaphorical backpack.
Absolutely fantastic. Hit all the right rythems. The leads played off each other well. The tonal shifts from comedy to drama were seemless. Emotional scenes felt like true life moments and you could feel the conflict in Kumail's life between his family and his desire to adapt to American culture.
