You're Next is a film best avoided if you want to keep your intellect intact.
You're Next only thinks it's clever
Director: Adam Wingard
Starring: AJ Bowen, Sharni Vinson, Joe Swanberg
Anyone who thinks they have a dysfunctional family will find some solace in the Davison family. The parents’ 35th wedding anniversary is the excuse for a long-overdue family gathering.
Their adult children (Amy Seimetz, Bowen, Swanberg and Nicholas Tucci) and their partners join them at the -celebration, but this party gets interrupted by a group of masked and armed -intruders who look like cast-offs from 2001’s -Donnie Darko.
The popcorn violence is so overdone it quickly loses impact. Not even the deaths of their kin can stop the family squabbles, a supposedly humorous detail. For the most part, the jokes are too mean-spirited to be funny. It’s one of those annoying films that thinks it’s clever and can get away with bad storytelling and plot holes because it knows that it is trash.
