slowly learning to write better in English by doing silly little reviews over here
When the credits started rolling, I was thinking about if I actually liked the movie, because some parts got me entertained. However, those two post-credit scenes happened, then it was clear to me.
This project had every single resource imaginable to make a grand slam. Unfortunately, the rough cuts, the lazy script, and the misuse of the cast made this bland story that can't be dramatic enough to match the message it's trying to convey and isn't funny enough to make these jokes feel any less cheap.
Well, I grew watching Eddie Murphy's projects, so I was super excited for this movie. Then, the reviews started coming in, and they were rough. I said "Whatever, critics don't like comedy anyways!" and THEN I watched it with my parents, and the only thought in my mind for a good part of it was "oh... oh no."
I keep caughting myself thinking about the script and... Man, when you can meet the new characters they can be pretty charming,…
I loved this concept so much! It showed perfectly the strange feelings of growing old and being confused and scared about your new self - the longing to be accepted and the fear of not being grown enough, to not having achieved enough goals, the fear of making a fool of yourself - and being blind about how far have you come.
This short is absolutely stunning, and I needed to be reminded that, in the end, we are going to be okay.
