Surprisingly good underdog rap movie
This was a genuine surprise. With so many films that deal with such an
underdog story, it kind of felt like they were just tweaking things to
make it original when I first heard about it. But it was much better
than I hoped. A struggling overweight white female trying to be a
rapper didn't interest me much but it's how the characters and
situations are written that makes it so engaging and fresh. Also, the
director having experience with music videos, seems to know how to pick
songs. Keeping blues and rap side by side and a stunning finale song.
Danielle Macdonald has given one of the best performance of the year.
Still, the familiar tropes and some obvious parallels to other films
are the minor drawbacks here.
Didn't expect much, walked away very surprised in a great way.
What a shocker! I didn't think I would enjoy this but had time to kill.
I was impressed enough to post a review, which I never do. The
characters pulled me in and really made me feel something. Make me feel
something, angry, sad, happy, scared, confused, anything. A good movie
(for me) takes me away from my life and lets me see the world through
others eyes for an hour and a half. This is not a prospective I would
ever have imagined I would enjoy but I did. By the end of the movie I
was rooting for Pati and her friends. I really felt vested in what I
was seeing all a while through their eyes. Great acting, great story,
great idea all around. Watching this movie was time well spend. Kudos!

The 6.1 average is in my point of view very underrated for this movie.
All the characters spoke to me and touched me. It's a great plot, great
cast, great movie and amazing Patti. I couldn't believe she had to
learn to rap for the movie. I loved her raps!! I really recommend this
movie to anyone who have a heart for the underdogs.
