Pointless Nonsense

Posted in movies by Bill on February 19, 2017

girlfriendsdayGirlfriend’s Day is a Netflix original movie starring Bob Odenkirk which I wasn’t going to watch, but he did such an amazing bit on Colbert I weirdly felt like I owed it to him. It’s about a formerly great greeting card writer, now down on his luck, unable to write romance cards after his marriage fell apart.

The hook is that coming up with a good greeting card line is a MacGuffin for a crime story. Which as hooks go, could work, I think, but it’s stuck between weird-premise-crime-story and comedy-with-crime-elements, and I feel like if it picked one or the other, it would work a lot better.
