Brief Review

It’s nice to see a complete film in 90 minutes.

I was excited to see a non-white cast in a big-budget comedy that delivered.

The first 60 minutes have some solid comedy that is not holding any punches. The film’s third act gets serious and makes for a perfect date night movie. I enjoyed the whole cast and felt it had stronger comedic moments than No Hard Feelings.

I don’t want to spoil the ride, but get ready to face the devil!
