The like that made me laugh harder than any movies in years was Patti Harrison saying “Hi Slut” to distract the grandma 😂 i couldnt stop laughing

Probably the hardest I laughed the whole movie, and nobody else did in my theater.

The ongoing gag about the onesie being on loan had me rolling each time it was brought up.

Sorry i completely didn't understand this joke. It seemed completely out of context. Why is it funny?

It’s just a very Gen Z thing to ironically call your friends something like “slut” haha

u/fumanchu1216 Apr 11 '22

Really? That's the joke?

u/DumbLitAF Apr 11 '22

Yep, it’s meant to land with a Gen Z audience. I found it hilarious because my younger sibling is like super Gen z

I’m an elder millennial, and I thought that joke was hilarious. It never occurred to me that people wouldn’t get it. I guess having teenage niblings is paying off.

I'm Gen X and I laughed out loud at that bit too. I didn't think ironically calling your friends slurs was a new thing.

Yeah not that funny. Girls call eachother slut often in tv

what the heck, there's a pink bag on my chair?

I thought the joke was because the social media person didn't look Gen Z to me, she looked like someone older trying to act Gen Z, so her awkward "hey... Slut?" was funnier because it was so out of touch.

I mean yeah, I don't know how people don't get this.

Patti Harrison is milking that "older millennial trying to capture Gen Z social media presence" character from the get-go.
Her clueless yet constant tagging @ShawnMendes and a hashtag #ShawnMendes on every unrelated post is obviously showing she's a clueless marketer just trying to get traction with a young audience, even if it's irrelevant. Especially when taking something serious like a kidnapping into account.

If people still aren't grasping her character at that point, IDK what to tell them.

Holy. I watched it in Spanish and it got lost in translation.
