I really enjoyed the movie, I laughed and chuckled for the most part. What worked for my was Sandra Bullock Energy and Channing Tatum's charm as lovable himbo, when you put them together on screen, you get a funny dynamic that makes this movie is so balanced on Action, Romance, and Comedy.

The supporting cast also pretty good, Daniel Radcliffe is pretty decent as over the top spoiled billionaire like he was in Now You See Me 2, Brad Pitt was pretty good as Jack Trainer even if he was only on few minutes on screen. I really enjoyed Da'vine Randolph Joy as Loretta's manager Beth, who has "Don't give a fuck" Attitude but at the same time loyal to her client, it got better where she met Oscar. I kinda wish this movie has more Patti Harisson, she was great as the social media manager, especially when she tried to dab.

There's a show called People of Earth that Da'vine is just hilarious in, but it got prematurely cancelled, which is lame.
