I was sold at the premise of “Joan Crawford does a circus movie”
Unfortunately she’s the only thing consistent about the film. There’s a huge tone problem the film can’t figure out. It can’t decide whether to be a character study or a horror film. Unfortunately, neither rise to the level of Ms. Crawfords performance.
One of my all time favorites, always a good go to when I need a mood booster.
Anne Hathaway is a great protagonist, Emily Blunt and Stanley Tucci are great supporting characters. But oh my god Meryl Streep. She’s god tier in this movie. She should’ve won her third Oscar for this film.
Everything else about this movie works so well from the humor, to the costumes and especially the music. Just a genius film that fires on all cylinders.
This time on “my boyfriend liked trash movies as a kid and now he’s making me watch them”
This film is a doozy. Christopher Lloyd and Jeff Daniels do there best, but there’s nothing but rehashed family alien tropes, and oh my god this film has aged poorly. There’s rape jokes galore.
It’s an awful movie to be blunt. Don’t watch if you have a choice.
