Oh my! It's been a full two months since we've seen a movie - at the theatre or on any streaming service. How very bad of us. 

There isn't a lot to see out there that isn't big box office fare.  But Guardians of the Galaxy?  nein.   The Little Mermaid?  Fuck no!  Fast and Furioux CXVI?  FUCK FUCK no.  The Book Club? How many Golden Girls-like movies can Jane Fonda make in a year?

Even our art house theater was showing two of those. Those poor guys were so hit hard by covid, they are forced to show mega-plex movies to stay alive. 

But Julia Louis Dreyfus has a new movie, You Hurt My Feelings.  I kept seeing it pop up in my IG feed. 

Let's start with the elderly woman at the box office, shall we?   

Me: "Two for You Hurt My Feelings." 
Her: "I'm sorry honey, I didn't mean to!"


{laughs all around}

Touché, old woman.  Touché.

Hurt is a relationship movie. Plain and simple.  Slightly predictable, but fairly well done.  Nothing major happens exactly. Emotional conflict? Sure. 

It has humour for sure, but the trailer made it seem more of a comedy than it is. Mostly it's is upbeat and it has a good pace.

We could not think of who played Julia's husband. It turns out it was the guy who played Prince Philip in seasons 3 and 4 of the the Crown. And Stewie from Succession is in it too.  The former did an exceptional job. 

All that said, it might be a better movie for streaming.
