Nick Schwab's rating of the film Cheap Thrills

As a social satire on greed, Cheap Thrills runs out of things to say. Yet, the character relationships and the intense character arc makes the emotion much, um, richer. It's held together by its actors and is the very definition of a dark comedy that works: you feel freakish laughing at its twisted humor among other people. Even if it's predictable in its plot, it's deliriously funny and dramatically intense.
