Music and Lyrics. Charming 2007 rom-com,
Drew Barrymore steals it. On Netflix now.

Jordan Peele’s 2nd movie after Get Out.

It’s bonkers - maybe too much so.

I need to see it again to really know how I feel. I see it’s got a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes, but I feel like audiences will be way more mixed in it than they were with Get Out. It kind of goes off the rails near the end (not necessarily a bad thing - but some audiences won’t appreciate it).

This is more of a horror movie than Get Out, and there are a couple of absolutely brilliant horror sequences in the middle. (The picture I used - which comes from the trailer so not a spoiler - is from my absolute favorite sequence).

HUH? They weren't mixed on Get Out,
the reviews sucked. Go to IMBd, there
are hundreds a bad reviews that go into
intricate detail on why get out with such
a piece of garbage. Here's a typical one

Terrible film with irresponsible message
davidpodmore30 April 2017
I can't believe the high score on this film. I'm a massive film fan and this is one of my favorite genres so trust me when I say this is very very overrated. The humor falls short and it is not scary in the slightest. Let's be honest, this is the same propaganda that is in the news right now with the black lives matter and Trump rubbish. This is highly irresponsible and offensive to any white person and if the film was the other way around with whites and blacks then there would be a massive backlash. How many films now play the race or sexism card now?! This film is a blatant rip off of Skeleton Key but Skeleton Key is actually a good film so ignore all the reviews on this film cause I can't help but think it just mirrors the sad state of the victim mentality and racism that is all the rage right now. Avoid!!

lol, those reviews mean less than nothing. Everyone knows that only trolls post reviews at IMDb and RT.

ESPECIALLY for movies made by/targeting minorities or women.

That being said, Get Out has a 7.7/10 on IMDb. How does that equal “the reviews sucked” in your mind? (For comparison, your favorite movie What Women Want has a 6.4.)

Right, trolls take the time to write
really long and detailed reviews
of movies, because they have
nothing else to do. Geez I'm
glad I don't live in your Bizzarro
world.

I tried to watch Get Out and it
SUCKS. Gave up after 40 min,
it's so obviously racist. White
people baaaaaadddd...

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. As usual, yours is in the minority.

And if you gave up after 40 minutes, how would you know the white people are bad? That isn't revealed until the third act.

Watch it again. It's obvious from the
beginning when you know the plot
going in.

Also, you actually go see the movie, so that's a big plus in your reviews.
Nobody learned anything from the global financial crisis.

It is? Is it a different movie when it
shows up on Nflix?
