BETWEEN US REVIEWED
“Between Us” is a movie about poor neoliberals realizing that marriage is hard. They find single paramours that can scratch their wanderlust, but they also have a nagging sensation in their brain. It’s that itch says to settle down and find permanence. But, why do that when the babysitter from “Crazy Stupid Love” will send you erotic photos? Good times are had by all until they aren’t had by all.
I hate to be that person, but I’m kinda sick of having to see this same movie repeated ad nauseum. Back in the 1990s, every other indie film tried to ape “Pulp Fiction” or “Clerks”. Now, they all share the same plot about urbanites trying to face adulthood. It’s hard to make an audience sympathetic to things that most would find repulsive in themselves. But, that’s when you can actually get them off their phones and watching a movie. What’s a sane person to do?
