I don't judge, but forcing ideas through art is nauseating as happens too often with politically correct influencers
What this movie does in excess:
Promotes interracial relationships; Pointless nudity: the leading actress has little dignity; It's way too hyperactive; Pretentious ; Pushes political ideas in you face; Supposes leftwingers are what's good, right wingers are naturally bad
What this movie does well: It is ultimately a well acted picture with some very charismatic lead characters. There's lots of chemistry between the two of them and they manage to make you laugh in a charming but understated way.
Ultimately it uses the power of art as a way of mass manipulation, which was at the core of the fascist practice. That aside, if you choose not to bother with these views it's a good comedy.
The cathartic, somewhat nuancing, last third of the film made me raise its score by 1.
