  1. Wow, $30 just to rent? I wonder how long the rental period will be. And when and how will it be available for purchase purchase, rather than renting? I am very interested to see how many people buy this! I think my astonishment at the price is because I haven’t seen a movie in theaters in years.

  2. the kiss was totally problematic. i mean they’re dancing around, limbs everywhere, and one of the girls had bare feet while the other was totally wearing shoes. like, where are the adults?! next step, indeed.

  3. Please don’t romanticize the abuse of us disabled and mentally ill folks. We already have enough of that on our plates. Only abled people would say “Oo, murder me”, when for us it’s an actual concern. Eugenics and ableism still super exist, friends. I hate to spoil the party, but someone needs to say it.
