Bodies Bodies Bodies

Bodies Bodies Bodies ★★★½

"Don't call her a psychopath. It's so ableist."

Bodies Bodies Bodies is the social-media-era reimagining of Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None, with an engrossing whodunit storyline and scathing mockery of the gen Z. It's not the most groundbreaking output of the genre, but it's definitely a fun experience to sit through.

A premise of game night gone wrong requires a solid ensemble to pull off, and Bodies Bodies Bodies has precisely that. From Rachel Sennott's instantly iconic stan Twitter persona, to Lee Pace's irresistible daddy vibe, everyone pitched in, and it's truly nice seeing Maria Bakalova in a role that fits her like a glove. Hell, even Pete Davidson felt less irritating than he usually does.

Having said that, Bodies Bodies Bodies relies so heavily on its parodic side for it to work, that the mystery-solving procedures come off as trivial and static in comparison. I'm just glad it didn't take the obvious route which could've ruined the whole momentum. Recommended.
