In our quest to start filling in the gaps of 2020, we found ourselves looking for the fun, smaller releases. Today we’re talking about Save Yourselves! The draw for us was Sunita Mani, who we know from Glow. Co-starring is John Reynolds from Search Party, but we know him as the kind of doofy deputy on Stranger Things. Pair them with this weird story about a couple trying to unplug from reality for a bit, and the world going to shit while they’re away and we thought we had a sure fire winner. We were a bit off.
Save Yourselves was a fun movie and we liked it. Let’s say that right away. They were cute together and that was enough to get us through to the end. Unfortunately the movie felt kind of sparse and lacked a point really. Wil kept asking himself “but why tho” and that’s not a great endorsement. Not that we think every movie needs a hard moral, but there just wasn’t enough in here for us to really hang onto.
What did you think of Save Yourselves? If you haven’t seen it, check it out on Hulu. If you have, let us know your thoughts over on Twitter or in the Youtube comments! We’d love a bit more action on our regularly scheduled content. Our episodic TV coverage has been going great for us, so now we just want to try and amplify these deeper dives that have been our bread and butter for over three years now. So chat us up! For now though grab your old guns and ethanol bombs and settle in for today’s poufe filled episode of So…I’m Watching This Show!
POUFE ON THE ROOF!!
