    maybe a little too ambitious for it's own good, and also simultaneously underwhelming, but i honestly LOVED the concept and ending enough to forgive it's flaws

    also: original screenplays like this are an absolute NECESSITY. even if they don't hit their mark perfectly, they still make most churned out mainstream hollywood scripts look ridiculously lazy in comparison, and are completely worth the risk of creating and putting out into the world

    this is one of the best movies about toxic masculinity ever made and STILL it's going over men's heads? my dudes i do not know what else we gotta do. anyway anne hathaway is A QUEEN and this also has the best final shot i've ever seen what a win for feminism and me personally

    I was worried this wouldn't retain the same impact on me as it did the first time (being shocked by some of the reveals later on and how much it made me flash back to previous moments in my own life, as stated in my previous review), but in all honesty......

    Watching it knowing what happens only made it worse. The little details in both leads' performances made previously happy and funny sequences feel tense in the most human way possible, and the ending hit even harder (resulting me to sob uncontrollably).

    I'm bound to find a movie that will technically impress me more, but I doubt I'll find one that emotionally wrecks and empowers a sense of relief and hope in the way this does.

    P.S: Anne Hathaway is so cute in this movie and Jason Sudeikis deserves all the awards for this performance.

    P.P.S: Katie is the best.

    No wonder most of the bad reviews come from men.
