There's a lot of merit within this film but it falls for the classic foible of on-the-nose dialogue. Show, don't tell. There are pillows and mugs that actually say "feminist" on them and the depiction of heartache with voice-over diary entries. However, I don't want to discredit this rom-com. Its woke rep is on point, some of its epiphanies are thoughtful and it is endearing. Anyway, I'm not its chosen demographic.
"Someone Great" lives and by the details of which it's comprised. Some of them lead to effective themes, and genuinely heartfelt moments. Others veer in the direction of tacky moments or ones that are sitcom-esque. One has to appreciate the bond the three leads manage to make, but at times the writing turns them into caricatures. There's a lot of good in this package that doesn't always feel as complete as its parts.
literally just an ad for urban outfitters home decor...lmao at how blogging for rolling stone is presented as the main character achieving her dreams and not as selling out or a deferment of her literary aspirations...cheating on/screaming at and shoving your bf is girl power now, thx netflix, cute neon lighting as a substitute for emotional depth
Mixed feelings alert! What I know for sure is that I will probably never rewatch it and also forget about it - but Gina Rodriguez and RuPaul are in this film so yay for that. Plus I now have a crush on that guy.
”I met you when everything was new and exciting, and the possibilities of the world seem endless. And they still are... for you, for me, but not for us. Somewhere between then and now, here and there, I guess we didn't just grow apart, we grew up. When something breaks, if the pieces are large enough, you can fix it. Unfortunately sometimes things don't break, they shatter.” #142
