So, yeah, being as vague as possible there so not to ruin it for anyone else. Suffice to say, I really liked 90% of Tully.
Sarcastic, depressed and worn-out mother of two with another on the way, debates on accepting a gift of a Night-Nanny. After several impatient moments with her middle child with obvious, but never spoken, autism, she agrees to accept the help. What follows is a series of nights where the new nanny brings sparks back into the mom's life and things are going great again.
The movie is a nice piece of reality and Charlize can really do no wrong. I absolutely believe she'll become a legend and go down in history books about movies as one of the greats. Is this movie great?
Not really, but it's pretty engaging despite it being so realistic. The cast is great, it was well filmed, acted and the dialogue felt both real and funny at times. One could argue this wasn't just lifted from someone's life.
Ahhh, but here's the age-old question: Is this movie worth spending a ton of money at the movies or just renting/watching on Netflix? The latter is true. It's definitely not a Lifetime® Television for Woman® movie as it even jokes about in the actual film. But, it's just a "at-home, wow, that was good" movie.
Just forget the twist! That was foreseen, dumb and unnecessary. It also reminded me of one of my favorite French Horror Movies that gave me high tension and had the same moronic twist.
Final thoughts: And movie, thanks for reminding me, once again, why I don't ever want kids. I don't have 1% of the patience needed. Whew! It's just exhausting seeing this movie and makes me glad about my decision.
