    I feel like this whole movie was written only because MGK recently found out “morning” and “mourning” are spelled differently and suddenly thought he was very clever.
  • MGK is a perfect example of just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.
  • Jason Paul
    honestly this just feels like one of those home movies you make as kids with your parents video camera for a few days in summer.....except with like....a much bigger budget lol

    If I had a nickel for everytime danny reviewed a movie with a 0% rating that features Pete Davidson giving the least invested performance of his life I’d have two nickels, which isn’t a lot but it’s weird that it happened twice
  • Sofia Lee
    "Pete Davidson feels like he's not really invested in this movie," is a statement that could be made about Pete Davidson in any movie he's ever been in.

    I have just an irrational hatred of MGK and I'm glad that everything he's doing is justifying that
  • javabeandreams
    Pete spelled his name out so we would see it was spelled Berry like the fruit, and not Barry like the traditional name. Which I think is the best part of the whole movie. Berry is a great name when it's spelled like the fruit.

    Wow. MGK is the most musical musician of our generation. He makes music that has sound, as well as words! In fact, his albums have songs! A true pilgrim of music.

    honestly gotta give major props to danny for suffering through this movie for us

    Danny was 100% accurate with the "UM...THAT JUST HAPPENED" Millennial vibes....
    The movie just screams I'm nearly middle aged but desperately want the approval of teenagers because I peaked in high school
  • Lillie George
    Danny’s critiques are so right on. Thinking smoking weed is somehow badass or subversive when it’s literally a legal and government regulated aspect of most states. And the opening scene feels like such a simultaneous rip off of every 80s comedy with the 1st person omniscient narration and then every 90s/00s teen comedy with the weed centric lines. I really hate to say it, but there’s something weird and profoundly unfunny about a bunch of ppl in their 30s and 40s acting like teenagers.

    i really want danny to be in a movie where the point is for it to be cliché, but danny's role is just to judge everyone and is totally unscripted

    When Danny said “and they’re both paralyzed” I genuinely thought he was joking, until it cut to the actual scene
  • hannahmusicale
    “machine gun Kelly was like my fans are probably young enough where both their grandparents are still alive so I should tell them what I means” what a PERFECT roast, Danny
  • Hannah Pugh
    The self-taped audition made me feel embarrassed. I was like, “Yikes so many people just had to watch MGK’s poor attempts at acting.”
  • Lizzy Starkk
    Fun fact: mgk said this movie was inspired by Megan fox literally dming him saying “good mourning” and him flipping out and over obsessing wondering if it was meant to be a bad thing or good thing. He literally said he almost lost his mind trying to figure it out 😂 can’t believe he made this movie
  • tobes
    do they ever explain why she also sent the text, “i wish i didn’t have to do this thru text”? is it just meant to be, ‘i wish i could be with you and say good morning in person’ ?
  • Luni
    This movie is literally the embodiment of "hey wouldn't it be cool if we did this" except they have no idea what they're doing
  • Eack_ Jeptic
    From Cody Ko fainting into his bowl of cereal to being paralyzed in a hospital with his “girlfriend”, MGK’s reaction to everything in this movie really is just “Wow. That just happened.”

    From wikipedia:

    In literary criticism, an idiot plot is one which is "kept in motion solely by virtue of the fact that everybody involved is an idiot,"  and where the story would quickly end, or possibly not even happen, if this were not the case.
