    Scream

    ★★★

    To make a very interesting Scream movie in 2022, you have to have a plot that transcends the slasher genre, accumulating to a truly unpredictable whodunit.

While We're Young is basically a coming of age story for middle aged people...sort of. The film pokes fun at middle aged people who are boring as well as 20 something hipsters while still managing to humanize both parties. Also, I love seeing Ben Stiller in these more toned down roles.
