Well I liked it
29 May 2019 | by ashalljSee all my reviews

I found this to be funny and smart and don't think it got a great promotion considering the number of reviews comparing it to Superbad. (It's not Superbad because it's 2019, oh and also because it's a different movie) Billie Lourde has some excellent line reading in this. It's bizarre and surreal and that's just the way I like my comedy.
