Almost went 4*, and still could, based on the fact that I think I laughed out loud in a theater more than I have so far this year. The plot was still pretty hackneyed but served its purpose as a vehicle for delivering the shockingly vulgar humor.

This is what I call a "Jimmy V" movie because it made me laugh, it made me cry, and it made me think. Awkwafina is so impressive and definitely deserves a nom at this early stage of the game. Wasn't expecting this one to touch me the way it did.

My favorite movie of 2019 so far. The comedy was brutally dark yet hilarious, contrasting well with some of the unease brought about by the plot action. Loved the writing, casting, and set design, which all helped perfect the appealingly offbeat tone pervasive throughout. Never have called myself an Eisenberg fan but this role was perfect for him, and he excelled in it. If I was even on the fence as to a "best of the year so far" statement, the way Stearns completely nails this ending definitely got me there. I will definitely be interested in anything Riley Stearns offers in the future.

While unfocused plot-wise at times I was fully engrossed throughout and found myself appreciating the approach as it allowed for the long scenes of shows or movies within the movie, which were some of the most enjoyable scenes for me. I would be lying if I said the fact that I was being entertained, knowing the eventual outcome for some characters, didn't make me feel uncomfortable but then felt that same, and maybe stronger, uncomfortable feeling upon later reflection of the deep satisfaction and joyful excitement I felt when the film concluded as it did (Tip of hat QT). Excellent soundtrack, cast, and production value. And I definitely want to see more of Margaret Qualley.

A more than agreeable palate cleanser that, with the weight of Avengers: End Game on it's heels, was always going to have more of a challenge acting as a bridge into a much changed Marvel Universe.
