SW SCORE: 39

4.5 out of 5 🐙

I love this movie. I don’t care that it’s ridiculous. I don’t care that it’s too long. I don’t care that a lot of the dialogue is just plain ludicrous. It makes me feel good and happy every single time I watch it. You know how valuable that is to me? Invaluable. Sure, there are sad parts. It’s a completely unreasonable and over the top life. But even those kinds of lives have dark parts. It still lights up my cynical heart every single time.

(1) Shark Wrighter (SW) Score: Based on a sum of 5 sub-scores (acting, directing, writing/story, effects: cinematography &/or animation &/or effects, editing) with 1 being terrible and 10 being terrific.

(2) Octopuses (0-5 🐙, with 5 being fantastic and 0 being feces)

(3) Octopuses are my unquantifiable feeling…not that SW score is scientific…but this one is even less so

(4) ++ This optional section includes any incredibly *brilliant observations that don’t fit into simple quantitative slices like the scores and octopuses *(they are likely NOT brilliant)
