I had put off seeing Free Guy. I thought the previews looked funny, but maybe a bit too silly. I figured we were seeing the best lines as teasers.
Well, all I can say is go see this movie NOW. Ray and I cracked up. It's clever, original, witty, silly in a good way, poignant, and ultimately does have an old fashioned love story at the core. Ryan Reynolds as Guy is so sweet, innocent, and just funny as hell. Jodie Comer is sharp, interesting, funny, and sweet too.
I'm not going to discuss the plot within the plot but it's well done as you move from corporate world to on-line gaming world. The writing works.
Free Guy is a hoot. It's entertaining and so fresh. I could easily watch it again and, no doubt, pick up on more references and laugh all over again. That is high praise from me. Enjoy!
