    ★★½

    One of my biggest guilty pleasures. It’s not a good movie by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s such a blast.

    When I think of some of the best films of the last few years, this one always comes to mind.

    ★★★

    The humor in this is about as dry as it comes. Some of it worked to glorious effect, other times it was just weird. Often kind of a flat movie, with a checked out Bill Murray lead performance; but there were still enough inspired moments for me to say I liked it. Fun late night movie.

    As a few have said before me, this is the film for the class of 2019. It’s so perfect that I saw this just days before graduation. Most of this is absolutely spot on and so well-done, but some of the jokes don’t land, especially near the beginning.
