    Movie that can give you brain cancer
    I am totally out of words to explain how much garbage and meaningless this movie is. No clue what and why things are happening. I usually dont write reviews but here I am taking my time to save the audience from this massacre. Watching this movie would not just be a waste of time. This will give you serious headache and no medicine will save you from the after effects of this movie. I still have no clue about who these audience are who have praised this nonsense movie. Save yourselves. Probably a -100/10 rating would justify. Without a doubt, the worst ever Movie i ever watched in my 35years on Earth.

    Watch This with Your Asian Mom
    You know how sometimes you watch a movie and you're like, "Wait, what just happened?" Well, that's pretty much what Everything Everywhere All At Once feels like, but in the best way possible. It's like someone mixed up all the genres, threw in some mind-bending sci-fi, a dash of family drama, and a whole lot of action, and somehow it all works.

    Michelle Yeoh is the absolute star of the show. She's like a martial arts master crossed with your mom who's trying to keep it together, and she totally pulls it off. Her range in this film is, dare I say it, mind-blowing.

    The plot? It's a wild ride. Parallel universes, alternate realities, and a cosmic convergence of... well, everything everywhere all at once. It's like trying to follow Joey's acting career - you're not quite sure where it's going, but you're thoroughly entertained the whole way through.

    The action sequences are like something out of a superhero comic book. You've got flips, kicks, and stunts that'll make you wonder if Michelle Yeoh secretly has superpowers. And the special effects? They're so over the top, it's like something Joey would dream up in his wildest acting fantasies.

    But it's not all about the action. The family dynamics in this film hit you right in the feels. There's heartache, reconciliation, and moments that tug at your heartstrings, but with a multiverse twist.

    And the humor? It's there, in all its sarcastic glory. The witty one-liners and clever quips are sprinkled throughout the film to keep you grinning.

    Everything Everywhere All At Once is a cinematic rollercoaster that takes you on a whirlwind tour of the multiverse, all while tugging at your heartstrings and making you laugh out loud. It's like an action-packed, sci-fi family drama, with a dash of wit thrown in for good measure. So, if you're in the mood for a movie that's equal parts mind-bending, heartwarming, and action-packed, this one's for you.

    One of the best films that one best picture indeed!
    This film is terrific and even with a lower budget, how on earth did they manage to create this masterpiece. Every single performance is terrific, and the direction is simply brilliant. I really like the chemistry between the leads and the concept is so good! Truly some of my favorite films of 2022, along with RRR, Avatar 2 and Top Gun 2. It had a really tough battle in the Oscars against all quiet on the western front, but I am glad that the Daniels have done it! This is what film directors need to learn about! The Raccaccoonie plot is so heartwarming, and it was good for them to get inspired by Ratatouille.

    Not what I expected, in a good way
    I come to watch "Everything Everywhere All at Once" thinking it is some well-made but run-of-the-mill human interest story of a woman finding her way as she navigates family situations. In a way, it is about that, but a third into the movie, you find yourself catapulted into one of the wackiest rides in cinematic history. The movie tries to answer a lot of our existential questions, and it does so through an outrageous adventure that partly doesn't make sense, partly gives you aha moments, and most importantly it entertains you with the visuals, costumes, action scenes, and endearing performances, especially by Michelle Yeoh and Stephanie Hsu who sports the movie's most memorable scene, confidently twirling those "weapons" in the air. Jamie Lee Curtis nails it, too, as a government Karen. Just sit back and enjoy the ride and try not to over analyze this like you would "Tenet" or "Inception." This is a comedy after all.

    In some universe, this was a good movie. Just not in this one.
    In some universe someone bothered to hire a writer to transform their random thoughts into a script.

    And then an editor, who politely explained that you can't just throw your moodboard at viewers. Your acid trip isn't a finished movie.

    And then a marketing team, who transferred the viewers from that universe to leave reviews in ours. That is unethical marketing practices and should be called out.

    I didn't hate it as much as others, some parts were sort of cute, but so diluted in endless nonsense that in the end made it just a pretentious waste of time. There was nothing life-changing or thought-provoking, at least not beyond thoughts any functioning brain has dealt with by the age of 15.

    There was hardly anything funny either. It just tried too hard to be shocking and deep and absurd, but it all stayed on the surface, without being willing to put in any work to create some substance underneath.

    Unique movie
    Originally this movie didn't seem appealing to me because of the theme and characters, but I decided to watch it because of a WatchMojo best movies of 2022 video. The plot was a bit slow at the beginning, but it gets really intriguing when all the craziness of the multiverse is shown. I don't want to spoil too much, but the thing that I liked about the movie was how Evelyn could acquire different skills from different versions of herself from other universes. Towards the end it got a little bit confusing, but I understood what was happening just about and was kind of satisfied with the ending, but I do wonder what would've happend in the alternative ending.

    Its a bad movie which caters to a lot of people
    This movie is inherently bad.its all style over substance. There is no clever storytelling, heck there isn't a story.

    So heres the reality This movie just caters to a large demographic 1) people who belong to lgbtq community 2)people who have immigrant parents 3)people who come from broken homes

    So this is the reason why many people consider it a masterpiece. In reality its just an average movie. People who have seen enough cinema in their life would never ,never call this a masterpiece. Usa,france,uk,china,india,spain,germany all these have movie industries and to call this movie the "Best film ever" is a joke.

    Entertaining but completely overrated
    First things first: it's a good movie. I enjoyed watching it. It had mostly good acting, it was funny, most fight scenes were hilarious.

    But at the same time it's too long, drawn out badly paced, repetitive and sometimes frustrating to watch. The ending could have been done in 10 minutes instead of like 30 minutes without losing anything storywise.

    The over the top praise this movie gets is a thing I don't really understand to be honest. Maybe it's a sign of the times, showing how bad cinema has become, when a good but also quite flawed movie like this gets so much attention.

    Nonetheless I'd recommend watching it, as it is refreshingly different to the crap that comes out of Hollywood. Also it's mostly free of clich├ęs that make most modern movies so unwatchable

    In summary: entertaining and funny but not even close to being the best movie ever, as some claim.

    A triumph in big and small scale storytelling
    One of my favourite films of 2022. The story is astonishingly well crafted managing to be both totally thrilling to watch on face value and also completely captivating to see the bigger themes unfold. A multi generation chinese-American family are struggling with their lives and relationships and get the chance to explore alternative realities where their lives have taken very different directions. The film is a triumph of both big and small scale story telling while never feeling trivial or pretentious. It was fun and action packed, showing off mind-blowing editing and filming techniques as well as spectacular martial arts amongst some truly surreal ideas. The ambition and expansiveness of this film is huge and somehow expertly woven together into something that not only makes sense but is a real wonder to behold. There is also a really powerful emotional core to the film, particularly with the mother daughter relationship as well as proper laugh out loud comedy moments. The cast do an incredible job with so much to do and multiple characters to play and I hope Oscar nominations are on the horizon.

    A wonderful and funny film that explores every possibility/outcome
    Going into this movie I had no idea what to expect at all. I mean sure, from the description of the movie I was kind of expecting chaos but what I got was chaos and then some... This movie was indeed Everywhere All at Once.

    I honestly loved it. I thought it would just be a plain old boring run of the mill time/dimension story but it turned out much MUCH better than I expected. The comedy was on point, the acting was superb, the plot was very intriguing and fun. I mean what was there not to love about this? Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert did a wonderful job directing this movie.

    And usually with these type of movies, the ending is always open for interpretation and left very open but I thought "Everything Everywhere All at Once" did a perfect job wrapping it all up in a nice little box leaving us with a very satisfying ending.
