I think every film critic and writer out there missed the entire point of the movie. It took a tragedy to bring the couple back together. Her new man turned out to be a psycho who was completely out of line and cringeworthy and I'm still horrified by the last scene and a bit confused what happened. Was he wearing Spurs? He almost killed him and left him like garbage for his children to find.
That's what it took for the wife to realize how selfish she was being and how much she loves him. The town of 300 people doesn't make sense for some progressive dating other people situation.
I found the wife despicable. I had no empathy for her. And her boyfriend was the absolute worst, though dressed as her savior. I was very happy with the ending.
I love period pieces from the 90's. The location team did an excellent job reminiscing to this extremely innovative time in hip hop history. Real life Events were well documented and truthful. I could feel Dre and Cube's 5 finger grip on the film. The beats and the rapping were outstanding and wonderfully entertaining. The characters
seemed genuine and full of depth. I was moved by the deep rooted friendship that was seeded by struggle, bravery and determination.
I was laughing while I was crying. This movie combines the gritty elements of life and love while remaining upbeat and amusing. Gosling and Corell gave the audience a fly on the wall experience into the "boys club" and you want more...
