    This movie is balls to the wall (albeit pretty slow moving for the first half). The levels of wild stupidity it reaches are music to my ears.

    I wouldn’t call Glass, meaningful, satisfying or even really particularly good. Pointless scenes that go nowhere, heaps of recapping from Unbreakable and Split, awkward dialogue where characters are forced to verbalise things that became obvious to the audience moments earlier, a highly ambitious yet nonsensical ending...and a beautifully awkward and unnecessary director cameo early on.

    Boy did I enjoy it.

    Objectively, this film is really four stars at best; an overly sweet little rom-com. But fuck it, I had a great time!

    The rom-com genre is one which, from what I’ve seen, feels like it is 95% populated with trash. But every now and then I come across one that is genuinely charming and pure feel-good. This is a breezy, witty, occassionally cheesy film.

    The charm and comedic sensibilities of the three leads are absolutely…
