    “I’m from Texas. We don’t read minds, we operate on a handshake - TEXAS!”

    Qualley’s accent was deeply annoying but she certainly nailed the southern bravado. This is for anyone that ever complained that a film wasn’t gay enough. Lesbians making out to Linda Ronstadt plus a little Miley thrown in, as a treat! Would have traded Matt Damon’s entire presence for more Pedro Pascal but isn’t that always the case? As long as you don’t go into this expecting top tier Coen Brothers you’ll have an ok time.

    Reasons why I love this camp masterpiece:

    •R + J’s fish tank meet-cute 🐠 (My tween ass said Now That’s What I Call ROMANCE!)
    •That wild Capulet Mansion party 🎭 
    •John Leguizamo’s best role (fight me)
    •The mash-up of styles from classic westerns to Latin American iconography (thanks to largely filming in Mexico City) to Miami night club culture 
    •Soundtrack featuring everything from classical music to 90’s pop like The Cardigans to Radiohead and even a Prince cover by a…
