I came to watch this movie because I watched Ernest discuss his movies in Pandji's vlog. He mentioned that his recipe for making good movie is "relatability".
You have to make something relatable to life of common people.
And I think that's the strength of this move. As father of teenager in Jakarta, I can relate the problematic in growing a millenial. Also I can relate how work deadlines and schedules took away something that is most important to us: quality time with our loved ones. Although it is a cliche, but the movie then becomes real and resonate strongly in your heart.
And I always love how Ernest build dialogues in his movies. Always sound real, although you know the jokes are made up. And to have those stand up comedians appear as cameos (or supporting acts) always bring fresh humor to his movie.
Finally, another entertaining movie, with full of messages to audience - delivered in strong power of relatability.
Can't wait to see Ernest's movie again.
