So bad that it's great
9 June 2018 | by enikoemadarSee all my reviews

I really liked it, it was a refreshing movie in a world of full of hyperreal fakes and imaginary. I liked it possibly for the same reason many people didn't like it that much. Everything in this movie was just depicting something that could easily be the actual reality without any form of exagerration, the main characters weren't any close to perfection, they weren't good looking, or super successful nor did they posses something supernatural. They were just... very ordinary people with a business idea, that also didn't really want to catch on. It showed struggling, real struggling the way ordinary people struggle in a wold where it is so difficult to get ahead without connections. The characters were so awkward, as well as the scenes that it was excellent. The characters weren't introduced as something special, which is why it was so relatable and this is something we miss out of our lives, we are aiming to create a world full of imporvements on reality that we all start to believe we are so special, and this movie, for a change showed the exact opposite of that idea. There wasn't a familiar way of a story line, either. It just kind of went with the flow, which is unusual with the Hollywood generation of movies. There wasn't really a so called special element to this movie yet it still managed to be entertaining wihout any forced humor that the outcome was excellent. It felt real, no comedy themed movies I've watched ever managed to do that.
