Lazy Goombas Thoughts
The Good: I have always liked movies which have multiple plots going on all at once. Then at some point these plots connect. Jason Bateman played the part of a distant but loving father pretty well. I think it mainly because he was sporting a solid beard which made him look more serious. The movie looks at very current problems in society today and it really portrays great accuracy in showing these problems.
The Bad: This movie is honestly so sad! This isn’t a bad thing, that’s what a drama is supposed to be. But seriously my girlfriend was balling her eyes out and I hate to admit it, but I must of cut onions near the end of the movie….
The Cliffhanger: One other thing that wasn’t great was not knowing if the kid in the movie survives. It kind of just ends. Also the scenes with the couple in the fraud ordeal and the man they are following, they were so intense! Definitely thought someone was going to die in that part of the plot.
