What to know

critics consensus

The Oath draws on hyper-partisan modern politics for a pointedly funny satire that hits its targets hard and often enough to more than achieve its desired discomfort. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

When Chris, a high-strung news junkie, and his more levelheaded wife learn that citizens are being asked to sign a loyalty oath to the president, their reaction is disbelief. As the Thanksgiving deadline to sign approaches, the combination of sparring relatives, Chris' own agitation and the unexpected arrival of two government agents sends an already tense holiday gathering completely off the rails.

    On the one hand I admire Barinholtz for trying to grapple with the deep seated rage and resentment festering in the heart of America, but he doesn't appear to have figured out how to coherently address it here. The movie is all over the place and the ending offers a resolution that is too simplistic.

    I mean, I could actually see Ike looking a little like Bill Engvall as he gets older. But forrealz, I can't decide if this would be better/less stressful or just seem completely ridiculous if so much of it didn't hit so close to home.

    Did not go the way that I expected, but I'm counting that as a good thing, I don't mind a movie taking a different path to the one I thought it would, my expectations are on me, and a pleasant surprise is still pleasant. Speaking of surprises, I like Tiffany Haddish in in this, something (based on my prior experiences) I didn't think would ever happen.
