Brilliant, utterly hilarious & heartbreaking

A dark comedy drama exploring the story of a disfunctiontional couple, who hates each others but stay together for the "sake" of their son, throughout the covid-19's lockdown from 2020 up to at least 1st half of 2021. At first i thought that it's still a bit early to explore this theme, but it's actually a perfect time to release it.

You'll have a good laugh and cry out of this movie, brilliant script and performance from both James McAvoy & Sharon Horgan. It does it feels like a play, since they're mostly involved us into their conversations, they look straight to the camera. At first, it's kind of weird but it doesn't lasts that long for me to be hooked to the story.

1.5 hrs doesn't feels that long, I even surprises when the movie ends because I thought it still have like at least 30 minutes to go. I've re-watched it at least 4 times as for now, and each time it's still gives me a good laugh & heartbreak at the same time. Even if you're not from the UK, you'll somehow still can relate about a few aspects explored in this movie.

It's just good. Give it a try.

No laughs, just misery

Two wonderful actors deliver pure misery for an hour an a half.

It's also boring a repetitive.

Not sure what to make of it.

Was hoping for a few laughs.

Boring and no laughs

The movie is boring. The third person was annoying. No laughs, could not handle it. Nice actors but this movie isn't worth the ticket price. Do not recommend unless if you want to sleep during the movie.
