My wife and I have a saying when we watch a truly awful movie: “It may have been bad, but it was no Ginger & Rosa“. We arrived at this maxim after sitting through a movie that in every way bored and disappointed us as viewers. Well, we’re now going to have to change that saying, because Sorry to Bother You is the new champion of truly awful movies.
Ostensibly labeled a comedy, there is nothing remotely funny about the film, and given the outcome, ‘comedy’ is certainly not meant in the traditional sense of Greek theater. The movie strives to be a social, racial and political commentary, and instead ends up offering absolutely nothing of value.
