Getting my fourth degree in Film Studies
The humour is there but neither affective nor effective for me. Is this about the depressing state of the world? That's made clear in the first sequence and nothing new is said about it here. Are the two characters supposed to be miserable? Yes, but one of them is a homeowner and the other is protected by the union. Perhaps this is only for a first-world audience. Couldn't take away anything from this film.
Above average performances, but spectacularly meaningless script. You never form an emotional connection with any of the characters, and the few explicit comments on immigration issues in the US feel unwarranted and just annoying. Overall it gives too little to actually deliver anything.
