I hate the name but it kind of makes sense, especially at the end but I still hate it. The film itself, I enjoyed. It’s a bit of a rollercoaster ride. It’s quite comical as well. It’s just funny because these people are like the least most violent people in the world, yet they get thrown into such a dark world with criminals. The comedy is the only reason the film is bearable as it’s quite dull so without that aspect, I think it would be a very boring film.
Melanie Lynskey, who plays the main character, is really likeable. I felt for her because she doesn’t ever do anything wrong. She just wants to be treated with respect and stand up for herself, which she does end up doing. She shows guts towards the end of the film. She really makes the character lovable.
It’s a relatable film because it shows a true representation of what today’s society is like. Have you ever had a dog continuously poop in your garden and the owners just leave it? That’s an aspect of the film that felt realistic. People in this world don’t care about anybody else but themselves and the film shows that.
It’s an entertaining film but it’s not the most exciting!
