    Lacking character development (aside from the obvious change in the two leading characters) and just a little self indulgent.. suffers from a slow second act and a lack of character dynamics. It seemed like the characters were all there with each other the whole movie, but they hardly had any worthwhile interaction. Timothee was in this movie for like 5 minutes also but I don’t really know why

    Rosamund has one moment in this movie that I thought was SOOOO comically over acted, even though it was supposed to be a deadly serious moment. I cringed

    Wow!


    It’s a clever concept combined with sharp social commentary and a refreshingly positive portrayal of the black power movement. It clearly illustrates racism not as a personal battle to be overcome (like some other movies...) but as a systemic issue that can’t be defeated unless the people in power relinquish some control. It’s heartbreaking yet empowering. It’s also hilarious! Lots of moments had me laughing out loud and it pulls no punches. Definitely one that will have people talking for a long time, and for good reason.

    I actually liked this a lot! I was expecting the same old same old, and while some of it is the same old same old, it was generally entertaining and thought-provoking enough to make the run time worth it. Will I be seeing the second one? Absolutely. Does Chris Evans have every right to punch me in the face? Absolutely.

    Super cute but ummmmm why did I hear a Fall Out Boy song TWICE in this movie... I’m sorry but a half a star must be revoked.
