    Bonkers kids movie squarely in line with Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure or Babe Pig in the City, just as goofy and weird and traumatizing as those, although maybe the craft isn’t as crazy impeccable. Ignore that corny ass poster, this dog actually fucks and leaves an empty bottle of champagne in his wake.

    harkens back to an era where they’d let slip maybe one Edge of Tomorrow a year if you were lucky, but that was an eternity ago, back when there were five studios not two. I plead with you, go see your friends, your family, take an evening stroll, fix that record player, study for the LSATs, watch Sam Richardson in literally anything else (and hell why not start with "Scrooge Encounters A Cyborg From Christmas In 3050," a much better and way shorter…
