    As well as its plot being eerily similar to that of Demolition, it’s just as misguided. show more

    It isn’t creepy, but it isn’t terribly plausible, either. It’s just another movie in which a 30ish white dude finds purpose and learns how to live life again through the love and support of a younger woman who’s more of a concept than a real person. show more
