This already looks like the typical screenplay heavy Oscar bait, with multiple big named actors all competing to be the best on screen. However, that doesn’t mean it won’t be good. If Adam McKay can mature a little and take the story of this film seriously then this could be one of the most interesting this year has to offer. Already it looks like another attempt from Steve Carell to be seen as a serious actor, and the rest of cast don’t appear to be providing any groundbreaking performances. If it’s good then great, if it sucks, who cares? Next.
