This is my first time writing a review but I was compelled when I saw the negative reviews of this film. Usually, films like these are reviewed with a higher regard when the characters are Caucasian.
If you switch the actors to Ryan Reynold and Margot Robbie, I believe the same people that hated Marlon's version, would love that version.
I look at the script first. It was a light hearted fun movie. A great movie to get stoned and enjoy a Friday night at home. The acting was no different than if the races were reversed.
I think people are brainwashed to view films with people that they are told should be a certain way. WAS it Oscar Worthy? No. But it is what it is. I wish we all can find that childlike energy that is within us and just let go and be free. I miss the 80's.
