I know this is ostensibly about the climate crisis, but it’s also about listening to scientists and COVID. That seems obvious, because this movie is about as subtle as a hammer, but: my parents, who are anti-vax, and sometimes pro-Trump, didn’t realize this movie is about them. Right over their heads. They thought it was obviously about science, but also about the promise of space travel to help us all escape one day. 

And I just don’t know how to handle that, because this movie is obviously obvious and not subtle, but yet… Anyway, I think we can all agree now that Adam McKay stinks and just got really lucky with The Big Short, right?
