Absurdist, Thought-provoking, Quirky, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you like broad humor, wacky plotting, some nod-your-head insights. 4 yg people try to find their way. Send-up of wh male privilege. Engaging

Don't see it if you want a clean ending...last scene drags. Or prefer realistic dialogue/plot/chars. But OR is well-acted/fun. Intimate space. Gd lighting.

Quirky, Disappointing, Confusing, Clever

See it if An interesting concept that needs to be cut by 20 minutes. I walked away intrigued and confused. Might have been the intent. Hot in theater!

Don't see it if It's missable, but a nice attempt.
