jonah’s review published on Letterboxd:
first of all, kyle richards's performance has no business being as good as it is.
I read the leaked script a month or two ago and had super low expectations for this movie because it seemed so threadbare in terms of storyline development. which holds true to the final product; this definitely suffers from "trilogy middle syndrome" (i think i just coined that) and this movie does not really have much of a plot to speak of. with one or two exceptions, literally everything in the movie stays exactly the same from beginning to end. it stood out like a sore thumb when reading the script, and it still does to a degree watching the film, but god damn if they didn't pull it off damn well!! this movie is sure as shit entertaining. even upsetting!!! (in a way that speaks to the film's credit ofc)
that being said, if i hadn't read the script ahead of time, i would definitely be disappointed by the lack of story development.
