Very Funny at Times

This film is very hit or miss. At times it can be really funny. For example one of the first scenes of the leads as a couple in their apartment is great. I think it really gets how couples are and how they argue about trivial things and they make it really funny.

But the film can get bogged down by the jokes that don't land and can kinda make you cringe slightly.

Issa Rea is great and probably my favourite part of the movie. Most of her lines land and don't get me wrong Kumail is really good to but some of his line do fall flat.

The plot is also kinda predictable and basic but it doesn't make it any less enjoyable.

I also noticed that Netflix basically did zero promotion for this movie which I found strange but Iv have kind of come to expect that from Netflix.

So it's an easy watch and you'll get a few laughs I'd say give it a watch

Right ingredients wrong quantities.

I think the movie was counting on the talent of the leads to make it a great movie and m Kumail Nanjaini has some great jokes Issa Rae has some clever lines but there's a big part of the movie where I found myself frustrated at the decisions of the lead characters, the movie seemed motivated by the reality TV mould, whereby they use irrational behavior of characters to create drama and a plot foundation,in the end it ends up very average while still watchable.

A film perfectly combines adventure and comedy.It is about a couple that is unintentionally incriminated in a murder and seeks to solve it without verse as murderers.It has few action scenes.It portrays the life of a couple in a masterful way in its beginnings and in the twilight of a relationship.The comedy moments are enjoyable, although there are some goofy moments, there are some parts of the dialogue risque.Entertaining Quality.Kumail Nanjiani has been making these kinds of characters lately and they look pretty good on him. There is a lot of chemistry between the protagonists.

have a look at this

Because this is a good mixture of genre interception, with a whole lot of the new verbal comedy, with a good stroke of blimping good old fashion coincidental kick and run fun, mixed with some coldblooded murders that send shivers through the unlucky couple, and where the black comedy are almost not excisting.

this film made me smile and even laugh occationally, and the charms that irradiates from the main actors in their adrenalittic fight or flee night in the city are great. most of all i liked the appearences of Kumail Nanjiani , whos bollywood smile and glitchy sparkling eyes really turns into a good prankingly well made comedy.

as a tech product its on the baseline of nescessety, the story may feel cheesy and cliche for the squemish, but the music chimes in well, and the playtime are just perfect. it has a well balanced line of plot between the comedy and the crimedrama. i can just say i started this viewing with low expectations, that felt like winning the lottery halfway through. so the grumpy old man gives a thumb up for this one.

Super Cute and Funny

You're probably gonna say to yourself "real people do not act like this." And you're most definitely right. However, if you can get past that, Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani make this movie hilarious with their own unique styles of comedy. Their performances shine bright next to a pretty lackluster plot and dialogue. If you're a fan of either of their work, like me, you will most likely have fun. The movie is enjoyable, and it is great to see two actors of color take the lead in a rom-Com/mystery!
