It's a black comedy, folks


Those of you who think this movie is unintentionally funny, maybe you didn't get it.

This wasn't funny on any level.

I disagree. There was quite a few funny bits in it.
But i ain't arguing... just my opinion.

Yeah it did seem and feel like it, a black comedy psychological thriller I would call it.

It often is played for, although often dark and serious laughs, it isn't meant to be taken too seriously and literally and it is in itself often too silly to be truly shocking.

From the fact that apparently all houses nearby are totally empty and Keanu couldn't seek help, to how two good looking seemingly not that strong ladies manage to overpower him at any opportunity and him being unable to do anything about it, to often many absurd bits and scenarios etc, it didn't feel like a serious straight-forward film at all.

Agreed. Some people sadly just don't get it.

Yes, this movie was intentionally funny as all get out! How did no one get this? My sides hurt from laughing so much at the end. 7/10

This movie wasn't funny, it was annoying as hell

I caught the last 25 minutes of the movie and I was laughing my head off. A black comedy explains it.

Definitely not a comedy. How'd you like it if women like them barged into your lives?
