If there's one thing to take away from this indie comedy, it's that more people should be required to learn basic life skills. God forbid something horrible happens on a global scale (again) and our generation dies off within months because we don't know how to clean a fish or change a tire or drive stick. It's embarrassing, mostly because I also can't do any of that stuff. This film goes a long way towards proving how useless most people are in serious situations. Overall, I think it was fairly amusing but really could've been better.
The film's biggest issue is how insufferable the two leads are. Su (Mani) and Jack (Reynolds) are a millennial couple from Brooklyn who are constantly plugged into their phones, are always hip on new trends, and have no actual skills or talents. When they decide to unplug for a week to focus on their relationship, they go to a remote woodland cabin just as weird little aliens invade the planet. They don't find out until it's too late, and now they have to escape the poofs. Making the aliens little disarming poofs was a neat idea, but making it so our heroes never find out what they are or where they came from was even better. It subverts expectations and makes the movie more realistic. But throughout the film, we have to hear these two make horrible decisions just so they don't sacrifice their white-bread, constantly offended personality. Decisions like not using a gun on the poofs because they aren't "gun people" or considering leaving a baby alone on the side of the road. I understand that their characters are written to be irritating, but if you go too far, they end up not being relatable.
These guys don't get any real development, and just as it seems it might be heading in that direction, the movie is over. The ending is ambiguous and weird, and obviously brings up way more questions than it answers. I think this film is gonna remain fairly underground. I don't see it being a cult hit any time soon. It's just got unlikable, annoying characters and an abrupt, unsatisfying ending.
