    It just goes to show how fantastic of a year for movies 2017 is that this one probably won’t even make my top 10 when all is said and done. Regardless, it was an extremely likable film that I can’t imagine many people would have complaints about. Some of the dialogue was a bit eye-roll worthy, but overall it’s totally worth the price of admission.

    It’s like an entire season of Fargo condensed into a 2-hour movie.

    Rewatched this today with low expectations and it honestly holds up pretty well. Sure, there are some cheesy late 90s/early 2000s moments here, but overall it's a lot less ridiculous than it could have been.

     It's amazing to note the contrast between this film, the start of the X-Men universe, and Logan, which may be the end of it. There were a few rocky patches, but overall, the evolution has been great.
