free guy is on Disney+ right now and fans are happy to dive back into it. Ryan Reynolds’ latest film is nominated for an Academy Award and the entire cast and crew must ride high. Director Shawn Levy couldn’t have expected this kind of success when the idea was pitched, but now look at the support behind Free Guy. Jodie Comer, Taika Waititi and Joe Keery probably don’t mind the boost either. Looks like the headwind of being a crowd pleaser last year will carry over to the home streaming market in 2022. All you have to do is look back Encanto taking over social media for what felt like a month to see what effect access to movies has on a fan base. Check out some of the best posts here:
“free guy is a great balance between Reynolds’ work on Marvel and his sometimes forgotten (and always underappreciated) work in romantic comedies, both in terms of the actor’s performance and in the film as a whole,” wrote Tanner Dedmon in the Comicbook.com review.”There’s ridiculous violence, teenage jokes, and plenty of industry satire, but there’s also some genuine love stories at the heart of this story, and they are the best moments in the film. That goes for romantic romances as well as platonic ones, with Guy and Lil Rel Howery’s Buddy having real heartbreaking encounters.”

I just watched Free Guy, it was better than I thought. And I knew it would be really good.

don’t trust them
Never trust someone who says Free Guy was just a money grab with squeaky jokes and no heart
