Bloody sex toys as weapons?

Think foot long bloody sex toys being used to kill a security guard and violent (meant to be comical) anal penetration during a fight scene. This movie is meant to take a comedic approach but it was unexpectedly graphic at times. Some BDSM (ball gag etc) references as well. The acting was great, the multiverse theme was very creative but overall it was excessive and gratuitous. The feel good family reconciliation in the end and ‘nothing matters except your own happiness’ finale fell flat. Every review I read was glowing, and I love Michelle Yeoh but I genuinely contemplated leaving before the end of the movie. Important to note there are mature sexual themes relating to violence, not my cup of tea.

Rated R for a reason

I see a lot of comments saying this movie should be rated pg-13 , and I really disagree. I saw it as an 18 year old and think it would be really awkward to watch it with kids or your parents . I always ask myself when writing a review “would I watch this with my parents?” And the answer is definitely no. Really good movie for a girls night out or a dudes night out though. It’s definitely the best movie I’ve seen in years.
