    Seriously this was pretty damn enjoyable. Only issue I have right away is that the darker aspects of the film don't quite mesh with everything else. Kendrick and Lively are also pretty fun together, while Golding is okay. Feig definitely surprised me overall

    This isn’t my type of movie but I loved it. The ending to me was so great. I loved the bit of comedy throughout the movie so it wasn’t too dark. When I was leaving the theater someone called it the lite version of Gone Girl.

    I've heard a lot of comparisons to Gone Girl accompanied by things like "goofy" "ridiculous" "absurd" and "fun" and honestly that has me pretty excited

    Honestly, it’s a great movie imo. I’m not much into suspense movies but this one kept me guessing till the end.

    This was a blast. Thank god Feig was the one to adapt this. I can’t even imagine how bad this would have been with a director who tried to play it straight.

    Disappointed it broke the string of Zach Woods cameos tho.

    This was terrific, solid mix of noir and comedy (particularly Kendrick) with so many twists without getting hacky. My first thought when they found a body was that Emily had a twin

    of course I'm gonna love a movie where Anna Kendrick sings Mambo No 5
    Anna was perfectly cast as Stephanie, she got to pretty much play a theater kid it's perfect, I loved that her last name was Smothers
    Blake was great as Emily
    Henry Golding sure didn't look like any liberal arts college professor I've ever seen, I think those might have been his real tattoos, I wish his character was more developed though
    Andrew Rannells was great too but wanted more of him
    didn't recognize Linda Cardellini, I loved that scene, only Paul Feig would make a movie with a Mapplethorpe reference
    I'm not sure the whole brotherfucker thing worked thematically or really added anything to the story, Emily yelling it at the motel was hilarious though

    I didn't think that body looked like Emily

    it definitely went the Gillian Flynn route of women are crazy and men are too dumb and horny to notice , Sean even says that Emily is gaslighting Stephanie

    Pretty happy I didn't watch any trailers and went in as blind as I could because reading "from the darker side of Paul Feig" might've readjusted my expectations

    Pretty let down, but points for the Diabolique reference.

    Surprised this doubled what White Boy Rick did at the box office, when I saw wayyyy more ads for WBR.
  24. This was like a Lifetime movie with a bigger budget. Haha. I liked it a lot.

    This movie was insane, and the switches between comedy and suspense were very jarring, but it was very enjoyable. Can we please put Andrew Rannells in everything from now on?
