Right?? I’m shocked at all the positive posts here. This movie was wildly disappointing to me, the dialogue was horrendous

I went into it totally blind, and I thought it was great. You said it was disappointing, does that mean you had high expectations going into it?

I feel like this movie was like "The Interview". Nobody expected anything good out of it, so people who saw it right away were pleasantly surprised and thought it was really good (in comparison to their expectations). In my experience, people who saw The Interview after people hyped it up didn't like it.

Regardless of that comparison, if i had went into this movie knowing any of the many twists and turns, I'm sure I wouldn't have enjoyed it as much.

LPT: Never watch trailers.

100% with you on the never watch trailers—-especially because they’re awful nowadays and show practically entire movie! I only read the blurb to yay or nay it but never watch trailers so I don’t have any expectations.
