★★★½ review by Sean Gilman on Letterboxd
Strange to see a film to so utterly devoid of style, artfulness, subtext or even text itself. Still, I'm quite happy to spend 90 minutes watching Anna Kendrick hang out, get stoned and read the internet. That's she's able to create any kind of emotionally engaging character out of this nothingness is a wonder. What is acting?
Also, how long do you think it would take to get sick of living ironically in that house? How long before they rip out the tiki bar and refurnish it with Ikea? I'd last six months, tops.
★★★★½ review by Miles on Letterboxd
Welp, Swanberg consistently makes me feel the feels. The woman feels and the man feels. The Olivia Wilde feels and the Anna Kendrick feels. Even the Lena Dunham feels. The drunk feels and the sober feels. God damn it, I love the feels he makes me feel.
★★★★ review by Laura Saladino on Letterboxd
I got drinks with a friend of mine from high school tonight and in the middle of him mansplaining the Standing Rock ordeal to me he casually slipped into the conversation that he didn't know whether or not this was a date and I couldn't answer because he just. kept. talking. but in my head I thought, "Buddy. Pal. Please. We literally get drinks every year and a half since graduating college and it has NEVER been a date. Like, dude, we are friends and we've been friends for ten years; absolutely nothing has changed in those ten years. Just because you had a girlfriend last time we got drinks and now you don't doesn't mean this is a date," but I didn't get to say any of that because then he immediately moved on to talking about how he's trying to make things work with his ex-fiancee.
This obviously isn't a review of HAPPY CHRISTMAS, but does anyone want to ban men?
