^agreed.

It was enjoyable, but not fantastic. Very funny, and weird as hell.

I enjoyed it, and it was a good/suspenseful horror movie, and I appreciate its originality. The one thing that really stopped it from being great though was the logistics behind the whole operation. I won’t say any more until more people have seen it, but certain things just don’t add up.

Also, I did enjoy all of the foreshadowing, symbolism, and nods to other horror movies.

the opening to this Ringer review nailed it:

Quote :
"There is a passage in Stephen King’s Misery in which the protagonist, a best-selling novelist who is to some extent a double for King himself, explains the difference between Getting an Idea and Trying to Have an Idea.

I thought about these distinctions while watching Jordan Peele’s new thriller Us, which feels very much like the work of a filmmaker Trying to Have an Idea, or, more specifically, trying to have an idea as good as his last one."

Yeah, I read the synopsis.. The twist that one is the other seemed pretty obvious. But like do they clone families together, because then you'd have to make sure your "Husband" and "wife" and "kids" all were working together.. Idk. One day I'll see the movie
