Don’t see this expecting a comedy, it’s dark and full of apathy. It felt real, in a non funny way … I cheered for and cringed at both Candy and her stand-in throughout, at different times. It was interesting, I really wanted to know how it was going to end – and was 90% sure at one point that Candy was going to end up 6 feet under (but thankfully did not).
I was pleasantly surprised that this was most definitely not a rom com, which is what I was expecting. Not my favorite genre but for Barrymore was resigned to watched.

I see that my takeaway was not uncommon…

💩 💩 Alert: I’m not a fan of Sandler, so this one gets a double poop – because this person is also stating that an actress should stick to 1 character/genre type. https://www.imdb.com/review/rw6361425
