    Your enjoyment of this movie depends entirely on how much tolerance you have for Pete Davidson's schtick. I thought it was funny, charming & probably Judd Apatow's best movie in a decade, although it really didn't need to be nearly 2½ hours long.

    Extraordinary. The fact that this movie tackles so many different, important themes and does it with such ease is nothing short of a miracle.

    I don't think we're going to see a finer performance than Delroy Lindo's this year (or even the next few years).

    2020 has been a shit year, and this Spike Lee joint is a very small silver lining.

    Taking a story that's been told so many times before and filming it in a way that makes you feel like you're watching it for the very first time is so hard to do, and it's incredibly impressive that Andrew Patterson managed it with his first film.
