Failed female Midnight Run
19 March 2018 | by JithindurdenSee all my reviews

Tessa Thompson and Melissa Leo are great but this film is not. Trying to be a female Midnight Run for these times but pretty much nothing working except the performances of the lead actresses. The script is bland and a lot annoying at places and the comedy that is supposed to be working is outdated and boring. Then there is the ending where suddenly Thompson's character change a lot in her life without having any big realizations in the journey or consequences of applying it which is simply baffling that this could have been part of a student script that never got made because it shouldn't be.
