Everything Everywhere All At Once (2022)

As long as we recognize Lucas is washed up and most TV sucks, we'll all get along fine.

Everything Everywhere All At Once (2022)

Post by Leisher »

Subtitles alert, although the movie is mostly in English.

A plot synopsis from IMDB:
An aging Chinese immigrant is swept up in an insane adventure, in which she alone can save the world by exploring other universes connecting with the lives she could have led.
I had heard this was a really good movie involving the multiverse theory. Yep, think Rick and Morty, but Rick is an aging Chinese woman that runs a laundromat and Morty is her kid. Also, Jerry is still a Jerry, but the best Jerry. Following? If so, you're doing great because this movie is confusing! Sticking with R&M, no portal guns, instead weird actions determine where you jump and I still don't really get how that worked in this film. It's like you here get the talents of them there, but they also do what you do? Like R&M there are ridiculous universes, but really only one is showcased here.

There are also moments of hilarity. There is one fight scene that is so ridiculous you wouldn't believe me if I typed it here.

Exceptional acting throughout, and yes, she is familiar because that's exactly who you think it is. See if you get that statement without looking at the IMDB page.

This is like R&M if it was done by an entitled and pretentious third year film student in France who happened to love kung fu.

Entertaining movie, but odd and long.
