Boring with no real direction, just ridiculous
Firmly tongue in cheek from start to finish. Brilliant if taken for what it is 👏🏼
Interesting. Not what I expected. Not gunna lie.
Really fun, the pacing is good and the writing is decent and witty but Jess Weixler's nuanced performance shines, and the theme is what made it. Loved all the little background visual references ('try our new banana split'). Gruesomely cringey chompey body horror for me and gleefully cathartic for my partner, both of us giggled, squirmed and got to chat about gender and sex.
