There are probably only two ways you know about this movie. Either from the ad campaign or people around you have mentioned it. It's shown off as a comedy with undertones of social commentary. The film itself does have these qualities but isn't really about that. Instead of a comedy movie that talks about social problems and brings them to light, Sorry to Bother You is a movie about finding your place in the world. The ever familiar problem of being lost, not knowing what to do with your life and grasping for meaning. At least, it could have been that if it was better.
The biggest compliment I can give the movie is the attempt to talk about social issues. A more well-done analogy for class warfare that isn't immediately obvious. How relationships falter when a person transitions from one class to the other. The cinematography was interesting and wasn't bland which was also nice. The main character actually changed in the movie, going through what could be considered an arc.
However, this isn't a movie I would recommend for someone to watch for fun. The movie is lost just like the main character. It doesn't know how to string plot lines and scenes together. There are useless plot points that don't impact the story, a weird montage, and other odd aspects to the movie. It all detracts from the smart commentary made about society and how we view people of different backgrounds. It doesn't help that the movie takes a nosedive after introducing half horse half human people.
With commentary about social issues, the looming dangers of a company like Amazon, and political incompetence, the movie has a lot to say. It's just not crafted very well to get the point across in the way that it thinks it does. There are too many detours and instances where it seems too far-fetched. Wait to watch the movie when it is available to rent.
5/10 Probably would have been better if it was a comedy
