A surprise treat!
28 March 2018 | by tharpnlSee all my reviews

This is a memorable performance by a versatile, veteran actor, made all the more poignant by a role that often echoes his real-life movie star career. Beautifully written and brilliantly edited and choreographed, interspersed with Reynolds variously and hilariously playing alongside his younger self in clips from earlier films, this is a sweet and fitting addition to his already impressive legacy. It's one he can certainly be proud of, and worthy of recognition come awards season.
