| Coffee & Kareem - Netflix Movie Review
Coffee & Kareem was a very disappointing experience, because I had heard that it was awful and I was actually having a good time with it by the time the first act finished. I was really enjoying the relationship and dynamic between the characters of Coffee and Kareem, and it was fairly enjoyable. Nothing special, but decent.

However, then the disappointment came. The second act arrived and it took an extremely sharp dip in quality. By far the worst part about Coffee & Kareem is the script. There are a few funny jokes and I chuckled a couple of times, but the screenplay is mostly terrible and it contains some of the worst dialogue in any film from the past couple of years.

The characters are all one-dimensional, and most of them act in ways which are completely unbelievable. This meant that I could never become invested in their storylines. I put this mainly down to the atrocious screenplay, but I also think that the direction was pretty awful and the acting wasn't great. It's a shame, because I was actually quite a big fan of this director's last film, Stuber.

The overall narrative is completely unoriginal, but it's not the worst I have ever seen. Like I said at the start of this review, I liked where the story and the characters were going for the first thirty minutes of the film, but then everything just went downhill and I ended up hating it by the end.

Overall, Coffee & Kareem is a really bad film, with the first act and the cinematography being the shining moments. Despite that, I highly recommend that you stay away from it.
