Review: Deep Water
Vic (Ben Affleck) keep his marriage together by allowing his wife, Melinda (Ana de Armas) to have various affairs. She is in no way subtle about any of them. Then, they start dying, and Vic becomes the prime suspect for their murders.
This movie had one of the worst trailers I had seen in a long time, so of course I had to watch it since it's streaming on Hulu. I love a good trash fire. It's supposed to be an erotic thriller, only it's not really either. Melinda is horny, Vic is brooding, they have an overly precocious daughter who flat out accuses her dad of murder at one point and somehow is not popped in the mouth like I WOULD HAVE BEEN IMMEDIATELY! They also cast Nate from Euphoria as one of Melinda's lovers and expect us not to instantly root for Vic to kill him.
It slowly creeps along until its unintentionally hilarious climax. The last 10 minutes of this movie are probably the hardest I've laughed at any more all year. It's worth it just for that one guffaw.
Everyone's on auto pilot and there's nothing revolutionary here, but it's a fine watch if you have Hulu.
