I thought, this was the other gay conversion therapy movie. 🤔Well. It was still really good. Books turned into movies get criticized harder in general. I remember, watching the first showing of Deadpool and a guy waiting in line asked, "Was it good" I asked if he read the comic. He said, no. "Well. Then, you'll love it." I was also surprised and delighted to see a Native playing well, a different tribe. Also, a half scene given to at least explain what Two-Spirit means. It also tiptoed, around Native assimilation in Adam Red Eagle's introduction.
It has these Breakfast Club moments but were so original. Bumble Bee also, had similar John Hughes moments. It's just, it's an unfair comparison. 😂 This is better, differently and differently the same. 😁
There's a weight to being yourself that I think is relatable to even us "straighties." Us, normals. When, my kid came out I was proud of her but I think movies similar to this show the pressures to conform. Everyone talks about co-parenting and the need to be a great parent. Great parents, make great kids. Blah. Blah. What if, the kid doesn't want to be, "great" 😂 Not, a hoodlum but just not what you think is great. I think, that's what parents feared the most especially in the nineties with the fear tactics used by conservatives at the time. That conservatives pushed a narrative to be homosexual, was a death sentence. Anyways. The movie, excluded much of the colorful dialogue in the same period to concentrate on the characters and the conflict of religious based conversion therapy. I thought it was, a great story. In our current climate it was a good time to address it even though, it may not have been commercially successful to do, so.

Wow... after leaving this movie all I can say is WOW! The Peanut Butter Falcon follows a 22 year old man named Zak (Zack Gottsagen) who has Down syndrome and is being cared for in a nursing home. Zak has his sights set on meeting his hero who’s a professional wrestler named “The Salt Water Redneck” so he breaks out of the nursing home and goes on a journey to find him. During his journey he meets a man name Tyler (Shia LaBeouf) who is in a bit of trouble himself, but has a big heart and promises to take Zak to meet his hero and attend his wrestling school. Guys, words cannot describe how amazing this movie is! I heard an interview with the creators on Collider Live and hearing everything they went through to get this movie made is incredible. Everything about the movie is amazing the acting by the 2 leads and also Dakota Johnson is a stand out as well playing a nursing home employee who takes care of Zak. I can sit and write/talk about everything I loved about this movie but I need you guys to see it for yourself. You will be laughing,crying and clapping throughout this incredible story of friendship and achieving your dreams. Guys do yourself a favor and see this movie. Take a group of people and they will feel so inspired after seeing this. This MOVIE IS PERFECT!
