VERDICT– 4/5

 

PROS –
1) Definitive Aubrey Plaza film. A must watch for millennials.
2) A young psychotic woman goes to Los Angeles to befriend a social media influencer only to discover how shallow her idol really is.
3) A modern-day horror tale of social media obsessed people chasing pseudo-celebrities and seeking validation from strangers in the form of likes and emojis.
4) The climactic #iamingrid is even more horrifying as a sociopath like Ingrid who tried committing suicide is venerated as a role-model and inspirations by millions. The irony is frightening.

 

CONS –
N/A

1) Henry Zebrowski & Mo Collins as Buddy Cop Duo

 

Cons –

 

1) One of those movie where you know the entire story just after watching the trailer.
2) Full of middle-school humor and it’s a forgettable one-time watch
3) Aubrey Plaza as Lenore – Why she agreed to do this cheap-ass American Pie rip-off is the big question.Actresses tends to do such role on their debut not after getting established.
4) As far as De Niro is concerned, it appears he just wants to have fun by making such silly comedies.It won’t hurt his legacy anyway.
