“We Love Each Other So Much…u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis is not your typical happy and energetic musical. Sitting alone in the theater, I was initially surprised and confused at Adam Driveru0026#39;s characteru0026#39;s vulgar sense of humor. I thought this movie would be bizarre and weird for itu0026#39;s whole runtime, and boy I was right, in a good way though.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe music dominated every aspect of every scenes and conversations. The characters only spoke one or two sentences before the singing began. While I donu0026#39;t like opera much, I still enjoyed how atmospheric and immersive the music was.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe story was also interesting. Initially it was about the marriage between the main two characters and their careers. After that, itu0026#39;s about the daughter character, who had a bizarre appearance. I was confused at first, but then it became clear at the end and I was impressed at the clever concept.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHowever, the best part of the movie was the great Adam Driver himself. The only thing that this man cannot do was probably be bad in a movie. That stand up comedy scene where he made a crazy joke about his wife was shocking. He carried the whole movie and did everything right.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOverall, probably the best and most unique musical that I have watched. Defiant try it out in theater or Amazon Prime in two weeks. 9/10.”
