spot. The only moments where something funny doesn't land can be attributed to an imbalance in that relationship.
Other than the two leads, there are a couple of other things that the film gets right. The lighting and color grading separate it from Netflix Originals. It's obviously low budget but would seem out of place coming from a streaming service. It has the perfect level of polish that would have been perfect two to three decades ago.
The biggest problems that hold Stuber from being a must see in theaters comes down to scope and story. With minimal action, a small number of locations, and only a few actors in the movie; this is not what audiences choose to see. The lack of character development also hits the quality of the film. The overall plot is very familiar, reminiscent of pre-2000s flicks that became classics it lacks a story.
Stuber is probably one of the funniest things you can watch on the big screen right now, which isn't saying much. Just don't expect anything too deep and take all the social commentary with a grain of salt. Though seeing it in a theater will be fine, watching it at home once you can see it on a streaming service also works.
I'm actually curious who is seeing this in theaters. If you actually do, drop a comment or tweet me
