The Paddington 2 of the Sonic franchise.
So conflicted over rating. The first 45 minutes is a quintessential Sturges first act with some incisive social commentary and a surprisingly good performance from Lloyd as a version of his Freshman who amounted to nothing.
However, once that first half ends, the movie stumbles through two more acts by introducing a lot of stuff and setpieces that seem to be trying to emulate Lloyd's more famous material than anything else that makes the whole movie seem lightweight. Honestly, one wishes that Frances Ramsden's surprisingly nuanced personality had a way bigger part even if she only made this movie because she was involved with Sturges.
