Not what I expected and I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. Intense, dark, with comedic flourishes.

Great casting for the female leads, but I initially found both characters too ‘over the top’, implausible, and unrelateable. Once I realized it was a black comedy and not a serious thriller in the ‘Gone Girl’ vein I began to enjoy it for what it was.

Not what I expected, but entertaining none the less. At times dark and serious and others ridiculous, goofy and quirky. Somewhat predictable and the profanity a bit over the top.

The stellar cast makes this silly spoof entertaining: Lively as the hot femme fatale, Golding (Crazy Rich Asians) as a sex object and Kendrick as a nerdy vlogger. An odd film based on Darcy Bell's novel that receives a 3.23/5 stars from goodreads, which means a so-so read.

Found the swearing unnecessary , spoiling it!

Great job of casting characters! If it was a book, it would be considered a page turner!

Funny and edgy. It kept us guessing what the ending would be. Definitely worth seeing.

Because of all the positive comments, we gave this a second look, but found the children shrill and bratty and the mothers too weird. Guess you have to be of this generation.

Sexy, twisty, cheeky fun. Go in knowing as little as possible and enjoy the ride!

I read the book and loved the book. The movie takes ideas from the book but creates a new different story that has a similar sprit. If you read the book you'll notice several different character changes in the movie. The book and movie both have a plot twist at the end, but they are completely different. Overall I would recommend both the movie and the book since they both tell a good story. The book is more of a thriller while the movie has a more comedic take on the story.

Emily, is missing right now. She asked me a simple favor, to pick up her son, Nicky, from school, which was five days ago.
My dad died when I was a senior in high school. And this boy showed up to the funeral. His name was Chris. And I guess he was the spitting image of my father, 30 years younger. My mom thought she saw a ghost. And it turned out
he was my half-brother.
-That's your whole secret? That your dad had an affair?
-Okay, can you just tell me your secret? Come on, spill it, dark side.
Stephanie, go home. Emily had some Xanax in the medicine cabinet. Take one. Take two. Yeah. Maybe she has some heroin lying around. Hmm? This is all just grief. Just stages of grief.
That's Squaw Lake! The kids all joke that it's holy water. Any fish you pull out of there is guaranteed to feed a multitude.
