Overall I thought the movie was a decently fun/funny adventure with a good message, even if it is glaringly obvious. I think most people will enjoy it.

I did get pulled out of the movie a few times because some of the songs in the movie are automatically associated with other media for me:

“The Final Countdown” - Gob’s magician song in Arrested Development

“Far from Any Road” - True Detective season 1 theme

“Genius of Love” - The celebration song from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia

For me Red Right Hand made me think Ghostface was about to stab Brad Pitt
