    Overall enjoyed it. The beginning was really good but then it just got so silly. I know it's a comedy but the gags have been done in so many other movies. Some of the kills were really well done and this one could easily be left open for a sequel.

    I thought they were for a minute there with the ambulance scene, but they closed it pretty definitely.

    I had a good time with the movie.
    Personally I liked it more than Happy Death Day 2U (which I still enjoyed).

    Though I have a hard time believing, that a cute girl like Kathryn Newton, would ever be bullied in school ;)

    I found this rather unbelievable as well. There wasn't much difference between her character pre and post Vaughn.

    I was also confused by the bullying. Not so much from the bitchy girls, but I would think most high school dudes would be into her, at least attracted to her. I get that Kathryn Newton wore nerdy thrift store clothes, but she was the most attractive female in the movie. Kind of reminded me of The Big Bang Theory where Melissa Rauch is supposed to be this frumpy unattractive nerd, but I always thought she was the best looking one on the show.

    Anyway, I really enjoyed this one as well. It might be because I was kinda drunk (which is not something I do very often) but for some reason that Aaron Rodgers part absolutely killed me. I laughed for the entire scene in the parking lot, and then when he puts the mask back on at the dance I completely lost it again.

    I will chime in and say this one didn't really do it for me. It felt a little too slow to get going and I really wasn't interested in these characters. I really hated that the movie basically had two endings too. Much, much, much prefer Happy Death Day.

    There was some time towards the middle once Vince Vaughn was playing the lead girl that I was enjoying myself more, but it kept reminding me how much I wanted to go watch Freaky Friday with Jamie Lee Curtis again instead.

    ^ Get it from Best Buy if you can. Amazon is a price-follower, so support the businesses who are actually giving the deals. Without them, everything on Amazon would be full price.
