    Saw the trailer for this just an hour or so ago. Looked intriguing. Haven't been to a movie since Proud Mary and that was disappointing. Before that was Last Jedi.

    At this point in my life, I need to be picky and choosey about the movies I see, since they're down to about two a year. But this one has potential.

    Oh wow, Paul Feig directed this? This looks nothing like his filmography. Curious to see how he handles a more serious film. Shame it looks so similar to Gone Girl though.

    I think this looks pretty fun, even if it gives me discount Gone Girl vibes.

    Talk about a trailer giving away everything including Anna Kendrick having an affair with Blake Lively's husband and what looks like Blake Lively setting up revenge.

    This was like a really well made soap opera on crack. Lots of twists and turns you wont expect. It's also really funny.

    I do hope that it's not a Game Night situation where the multiple twists makes the movie unconducive for re-watches. I loved GN but I don't think I can watch it again so hoping for better luck here.

    I read a couple spoilers and it's almost like it's satirizing Gone Girl and Girl on the Train type movies regarding twists and turns.

    Pretty much. Although it stands on its own as a movie.

    Watching the trailer I thought they were going for Single White Female for a minute there.

    Just saw this today. Was not expecting it to be that wild! Definitely shades of Gone Girl, but with a great self-aware humor. And I think I can safely say this is the first time I've actively LIKED Blake Lively in anything. I've found her tolerable at best in a couple other movies, but I really enjoyed her here.

    I really liked her in The Shallows, but she brings a lot more in this movie.

    Sounds like it’s going to make an ok profit. I’m surprised they didn’t advertise this better.
