    Of all the movies I watched in 2018, this was the one I liked the least. I stuck around to see how it ended & checked my email while I waited because the theater was empty anyway. The sets were stylish but the characters were far too annoying. I’d give it one star but I don’t want to be rude. I feel bad for the people who worked hard on this film.
  • Vulgar and unoriginal... Blake made a cheap career decision here

    First off, I was very disappointed by the unnecessary vulgar language and to see Blake Lively spew out one disgusting line after the other... all of it unconvincingly. Call it graphic vulgarity. Blake was clearly out of her element and uncomfortable in her role. I had envisioned Blake a classy actress, only to be bludgeoned by her lack of foresight by taking on a role as stupid as this one. The whole movie was a mess and uncomfortable to watch. The only reason I give it two stars is for the acting of Anna Kendricks, whose acting chops far surpassed everyone else... and for the big black cop she bantered with. Lousy directing, cheesy script and Blake’s uncomfortable performance make this movie a dud.

    Intelligent, chic - suburban noir that’s full of twists and turns that borders on dark comedy. Blake Lively and Anna K. Are at the top of their game.

    Watch literally anything else and save your money. This may be the only thing I have ever left a review of in my life but I felt like bots created by the studio/iTunes are leaving positive reviews. I'm baffled how anyone in their right mind can think this is anything other than pure dumpster juice. My wife and I agreed that they gave up about a quarter of the way in to making this movie and decided to just try anything that came into their heads. The plot twists people are writing about aren't twists, they are just desperate, contrived attempts to make sense out of a story that makes absolutely no sense. I feel like I can no longer trust Rotten Tomatoes or iTunes for reviews.
  • Awesome!

    This movie surprised me, I did not expect it to be as good or as well acted as it was. I have a new appreciation of Anna Kendrick & Blake Lively. Great, great pairing.

    This was quite funny, and I loved all the plot twists. The acting is not the best, and I would have liked the characters to be a bit more realistic because they lacked emotion in some parts of the movie where it was highly needed.
