Ryan Reynolds and Jodie Comer are a dream team!

I am a huge fan of Jodie Comer and I absolutely adore her on Killing Eve. I was really excited that she was going to be in this film and it was fun to see a different side of her. I thought these two made a great team. They had lots of chemistry and it helped elevate the movie even more for me.

Heartwarming and hilarious.

I found myself smiling throughout the entire movie. I just felt happy watching this and there were so many little moments in-between that really spoke to me. I expected this movie to be funny, especially with Ryan Reynolds leading the way, but it was also really charming and inspiring.

Awesome cameos and references.

There will be no spoilers in this review, but the cameos and references were so much fun. I was literally cheering with one of them and I think you will thoroughly enjoy them as well!

The Cons:

I don’t really have any…

The movie just worked in every way. As long as you don’t take it too seriously and expect an extreme action movie, you will enjoy it. Don’t go into it with any expectations. I loved every aspect of this movie and I would watch it again.

So am I in or out?
