Review: JO JO Rabbit

I start with a promise. This review contains no specifics.

I sat with an audience constantly chuckling, sandwiched between two bankers, and an empty bag of popcorn in hand,  (because the coming attraction were too long,) but I have to say,  seeing this film in a theatre with a bunch of people is the way to go.

So much fun.

Great story construction, characters that suck you in, and a wonderland setting slowly devolving into the agony and terror of war. There is lots going on here.

This movie about NAZIS is great fun. And Hitler was #1 great. There was a man in the beginning of the movie in my theatre beside himself with disgust for what was parading around in front of us on the screen.

He screamed out, “Yes lets all laugh at Nazi’s and Hitler.”

He was shushed and the laughter died a bit but a short while later it returned and the man remained quiet.

Cute and hard-hitting at the same time this is a film for people who like movies with many layers.

Even anti-anti-naziers will love this one.
