    people would like james corden more if he were simply the animated peter rabbit all the time (soft, mischievous, challenging but heartwarming relationship with domnhall gleeson)

    would love to see a version of this that leans into the more forlorn touches here — finding purpose in your life after the military, its cynical approach to television’s manipulative tendencies, masculinity and its limitations within intimate male friendships, absolutely losing your mind at a work party when you realize you’ve become a miserable tool of capitalism. what the movie IS, is a traditionally structured and shot MGM musical with that darkness around the edges that still ends with…
