Reviews of The Movie
Chicago sun-times said that the movie “The poorly executed tale of a hateful racist isn’t even worth watching as a curiosity.” The wrap has said that “The oddly cast Taryn Manning can’t find a character within the stereotype”. Variety said that “Anyone subjected to this Jordan Peele-inflected misfire will want to get out of the theatre as quickly as possible.”
Despite all the negative reviews, there are some people who actually liked the movie. A user on google commented “I enjoyed the movie. It was great to see the “I’m in charge” girl again. Most BET originals have a cheesy aspect, but to my surprise, this wasn’t one of them. My only complaint is that wig! Someone could have slapped a better wig on that head. My most enjoyable moment was seeing Ben Crump at the end. Job well done👏🏾” about the film.
Another user also said that “I really and seriously enjoyed this movie. It was spot on, and Taryn Manning did a phenomenal job as “Karen.” People of colour will give this movie a thumbs up! The depiction of a Karen is so accurate right down to the course kemonlips. I see why some people don’t like the movie. Truth hurts.”
