Great for teen plus

There is swearing and pot smoking. Most disturbing is a chimp that kills a girl and bites off her face. They don’t show it but it is implied. Chimp had blood everywhere. Then it is shot. The UFO parts are just creepy. Some jump scares. A man does in the beginning and they show his body. A brother and sister work together to defeat the UFO.

Nope? Ah, nope! Pass on this disaster of a movie. Even a brilliant director can't win them all.

Nope? Ah, nope! This film was a disappointment from beginning to end. The acting, especially the female lead, was juvenile and bordered on irritating - I just could not comprehend her take on this character, and found her role grating. Sorry, not sorry. I spent the entire film contemplating two things: how one scene related to another to create some sort of plot, and when is it okay for me to leave. In fact, I left the theatre irritated that I had fallen for the positive reviews, and wondering if I can ask for my money back. When you compare "Nope" to a great film like "Them", it's unfathomable they came from the brilliant mind of the same director. Save your money and pass on this boring disaster of a movie. Yep!
