Happy Death Day is about a college student (Jessica Rothe) reliving the day of her murder with both its unexceptional details and terrifying end until she discovers her killer's identity.
Review: Another movie I wasn't really expecting to be decent and that really had no interest in. But since the reviews were decent, my girlfriend and I just got moviepass, and we were also very bored, we gave it a shot. And it was actually worth it! The film didn't take itself too seriously allowing for a fun and thrilling time. Another plus, was that it wasn't too scary as both of us aren't really into horror films and it ended up having some decently funny moments. It had a twist that is somewhat predictable, but they throw misdirects at you throughout the film to turn you off course. Last, you might be seeing the leading lady, Jessica Rothe, a lot more as she delivers an exciting leading performance. It's not going to reinvent the genre, but not every movie needs to. Though it does give you and your girlfriend a fun time at the movies.
Bottom Line: A pretty fun date movie.

I don't think giving one score to a film is fair. There's a lot of aspects that go into making a film. Some are made as an art form trying to convey a message, others are simply entertainment, and some attempt to be both, So I want to answer the main questions that any kind of filmgoer would want to hear in a friendly conversation. My reviews are meant to be simple, quick, and very informal :).
