A fun and fast-paced movie that blends genres, with elements of comedy, action, and romance. The cast is strong, led by Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams, and with a memorable performance from Jesse Plemons, who plays a creepy divorced cop. There are lots of little sub-plots that are kept up throughout the film, on top of its plot twists and outrageous moments, and it's entertaining from start to finish.
