You don't know a good time until you've been in a room of sixtysomething white people feverishly whispering to each other "Is that Cher?!"

This film, while well made from a technical standpoint, is controversial amongst the general audience if my experience is anything to go by. The film sparked a lot of conversation when it ended, some good and some bad. The person I was sitting next to said:

 

"That's no Academy Award movie... that's no Casablanca..."

 

My parent and I talked about it during dinner afterwards:

 

Parent: "I did not like that film at all..."

Me: "Well, it was definitely outlandish..."

Parent: "Outlandish? They had (*spoiler*) together." *scoffs* "I had to stop myself from laughing out loud."

 

I'm willing to bet many of the general audience members seeking out this film have those viewpoints. And I think that's okay; that is definitely not a film most viewers are used to watching. But I think word-of-mouth has been taking hits and will continue to take hits.

How did they respond? 

I mean I know you said they trashed it but I want to know what these people who do NOT BELIEVE said.

Lots of "this looks stupid" and "It's like Sharknado without the Sharks", as well as some cringing during some of the lines of dialogue.

There were five of us: two older women in the back, a little boy and his mother, and myself.  The older women laughed once or twice.  The little boy announced to everyone that the "Movie was starting, because the lights went down."  He was also very concerned/talkative during some of the more emotional moments.  It was adorable.
