Ok, going to preface this review by just saying three things:
1: I needed a good cry movie tonight; I had to get some things out of my system.
2: The rest of this review might not be SFW!
Oh, forgot, the technicalities:
The Fundamentals of Caring is a Netflix original movie based on the book “The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving” by Jonathan Evison
Paul Rudd: as Ben (Friends, Anchorman, 40-year-old virgin)
Selena Gomez: as Dot (Yeah, all that teenage stuff, singer turned amazing actress.)
Jennifer Ehle: as Elsa (Fifty Shades of Grey, The Black List, also born in my home town!)
Craig Roberts: as Trevor (Being Human, Red Oaks)
Director: (Emmy Award Winning) Rob Burnett
A man (Rudd) after suffering a horrible loss decides to reach out and, not in his best interest, become a caregiver. Trevor (Roberts), a bitter kid without a Dad decides to take him on. How does this end up? Well, on a road trip across the country with the kid he is there to care-give for, fountains of youth are found….In a deep dark pit between them….
I needed a good cry movie tonight, and The Fundamentals of Caring did that for me! Actually, Selena Gomez kinda took the movie in a way I wasn’t expecting.Got to give her a lot of props for what she did in it. Was it a great movie? By no means…Does it fill a deep pit in your soul when you need a movie to cry too?…Yes, it absolutely does!
The Fundamentals of Caring is on Netflix now… and if you want to see a trailer you can…..
WAIT…WAIT…WAIT…. I said there was three things in my preface!!
3: fuck you…No, Fuck you…NO…FUCK you!…Now Stand up and take your piss! Stand up and take a PISS!
Told ya, Not all of this review would be SFW!
BTW: Trevor Conklin was handsome and cool……ALOHA!
