It's good. It's not life changing or close to the best of anything, but it's funny and charming. Both Viggo and Mahershala are terrific and deserve acclaim, but the film itself is nothing special if not at least entertaining. It'll probably age better than Driving Miss Daisy, though, even with some of the issues it has presenting racism in a palatable way to an (assumedly) mostly white audience.

Edit: And much like Driving Miss Daisy before it, the Academy loved it, because they're a bunch of dumb, old, white people.

Generic as hell. In a year in which we got the far better and more interesting BlacKkKlansman this feels really dated. Hopefully the awards circuit won't do the same thing it did to Spike in 1989.

Edit: They fucking did it.
