How does this not already have a thread? Written/directed by Bo Burnham

Missed a pre-screening opportunity for this one because of other commitments. Now that I've already seen Searching and Christopher Robin, this is the one I anticipate seeing most this weekend.

EDIT: Nevermind, looks like Searching was moved to August 24th (guess this weekend got overcrowded).

Opens nationwide this weekend and I really want to see it but I'm tight on cash...

Big fan of Bo Burnham, I've been looking forward to this since the trailer. Hopefully I'll get to see it this weekend.

Bo Burnham is one of the worst stand-up comedians of all-time. If this movie is even mediocre as opposed to godawful, I'll be shocked.

Yeah, his stand-up is pretty horrid stuff, but I'll still give this a shot considering the damn near universal praise.

I actually like Bo Burnham's stand up. I think he's funny.

I saw this movie last week. I really loved it! It was amazing how Burnham really captured what going through 8th grade was like. I could relate to a lot of the scenes. The main actress Elsie Fisher was phenomenal. This girl is going to win an Oscar someday.

I look forward to whatever movie Burnham does next.

His stand-up is not 100% my thing but he's definitely done a lot to earn where he is right now.
