Some days ago, I first heard about the new movie “Everything Everywhere All at Once” on Tik Tok where one person was raving about how great this film is. Some days later one of the stars of this film, Michelle Yeoh was on the View, where Whoopie Goldberg said, “you must see this movie”. Some time later I found out that the Rotten Tomatoes ratings were as high as 97% and critics were raving about how crazy and unusual and good this movie is.
When I saw this horrendous and monstrous mess of 2 hours and 19 minutes – I was expecting something very good or even great. I could not have been more wrong, or more disappointed at the strange insanity of what I saw. People get transported around by pressing green buttons on their ears, they put plastic eyes on their forehead. For some reason there is a giant bagel that has strange time travel powers, that eventually winds up as a hairdo on one of the characters. People karate fight with giant rubber penises and they dance around with giant rubber hot dogs instead of fingers. A Chinese family has some problems with the IRS and they visit an IRS agent played by Jamie Lee Curtis (who looks like she is 85 years old) and during the interview Evelyn, played by Michelle Yeoh gets transported to different times – for reasons unknown. There is no sense here, no logic, no continuity, no story, just a long and insane series of crazy scenes that as a viewer I could not wait until they were over. This movie also fools those – like me – who wanted to run from the theater, with a false alarm “THE END” scene, where I thought the agony was finally over. I thought this was especially cruel, considering how alarmingly bad this horrible mess was to sit through.
I remember thinking, what was the thought process here with this horrible movie, just about the worst one I have ever seen? Why make this level of sheer garbage? What was the point of all this?
As far as the very high reviews on both IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes, the only thing that makes sense is that the critics were paid off to give positive reviews. Nothing else really makes sense. This film is not a movie, its just insanity connected together by a screenwriter and director on LSD.
This disastrous production gets my lowest ever rating of a zero. Do not be fooled by paid-off critics and save 2+ hours what is arguably the worst film ever made.
