Those who love a classic romantic comedy will probably hate this movie, but I’m pretty sure that’s why Kate and I loved it. This is not a traditional romantic comedy in a hallmark kinda way. Even though the cover art completely makes you think it’s going to be. From the beginning you know these characters are damaged goods and they immediately start arguing from their first scene together.
From there this film is a roller coaster of sharp biting dialogue about current social norms and our traditional sense of romance. Nothing is left untouched from our inabilities to connect to screw top wine bottles.
Kate doesn’t recall the last time a movie made her laugh out loud this much. It’s an intelligent movie about cynics that need to find a moment to lighten up and relax with the fact that even though everything is not ok; in the end we just need to connect with each other.
If you haven’t heard of or watched the show known as Patriot on Amazon Prime yet you need to get on it. The first season feels like it came out years ago. While the pilot came out in 2015 we had to wait till 2017 for the rest of the first season show up. The second season just came out a week or so ago. This show is so so good if you like dark comedy spy family drama. Also the actors are all great with a number of huge names plus a bunch of new ones.
