This a Covid-19 2020 minireview!
Number of Times Seen – 1 (9 Jun 2020)
Brief Synopsis – On the evening where they intend to break up, a couple get involved in a murder mystery.
Bottom Line – Fun idea that doesn’t work well enough. Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani just don’t have the right kind of chemistry to make a film like this one work. The story gets into some very strange places and fails to hold on to the comedy aspect of things as the story unfolds. Things get far out of hand and it reaches a point here it’s got to be a bit much to watch. The way that things unfold just isn’t plausible enough and actually drags the story down further because it doesn’t seem realistic enough to happen like this. The story get too silly as the plot moves along in directions that we probably don’t want to go.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Paramount had originally planned to released the film theatrically on April 3, 2020, but decided to release it on Netflix due to the coronavirus pandemic and widespread theatre closings. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy (5/10)
