review

I saw a preview of this movie when I watched Hello, My Name Is Doris and appreciating acerbic wit, I thought I might enjoy this movie.

Elle (Lily Tomlin) was a unique individual, reminding me of Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory, who is a genius but has not social skill whatsoever. The only difference is that Elle is intentionally unpleasant versus Sheldon, who is unaware of his social faux pas.

The movie kind of reminded me also of when I used to smoke crack and the days I would spend with my sex partners trying to find crack at all hours of the day, or concocting ways to earn money to buy crack.

Okay movie, but not as funny as I expected it to be.
