A big enjoyable dose of... nothing
A guy goes to rob a house and becomes reluctantly embroiled in a young woman's suicide attempt.
Finding the conscious he has been missing so far in his life he returns to help her.
There are so many reasons why I should hate this film.
I actually can't understand how I enjoyed it as much as I did.
First off there is hardly any plot.
This is just a pair of beautiful losers hanging out for a day, talking laughing and fighting.
Yet I found it compelling viewing.
In my reviews of "Ocean's 8" and "Focus" I was very quick to wail on the main characters on account of them being scumbag criminals -both leads played by possibly the most two charismatic actors alive.
Inexplicably that is not an issue here. I was really invested in what they are up to and I wanted them to turn their lives around.
I guess that is this "chemistry" thing people are always banging on about.
If you want excitement or clever plot twists or nudity or pretty much anything outside of a rather standard romance then steer well clear of this.
Saying that I really enjoyed this, take a gamble put it on in the background and see if it drags you in.
