Fiction vs. Reality - Art and life can't be completely separated. This film blurs the line between the two, letting his characters haunt Harry in real life.

We have a lot in here about dysfunctional relationships and the desire to pick relations that can't work out. We explore Harry's flaws and his interactions and how the mix of the two leads to isolation and loneliness.

Mortality - Harry is faced with his own mortality from the time his ex picks up a gun through the very end, even watching a "friend" die in the car. The movie examines the consequences of his actions throughout his life and where that leaves Harry as he begins to confront the end of his existence.

The theme of possible fatherhood/ paternity. Both men are convinced they are the father and want to do whatever is best for the boy. I think they could’ve done much more with this, even in a comedy. Just something that made it feel more realistic.

The themes of Identity and Self-Discovery are evident in Jack, Dale, and Scott. Scott tries so hard to fit in and to win the girl he likes, but she’s always with someone else. Jack and Dale have to confront their own insecurities and past mistakes.

The top theme is making the most out of the time we have. Jack may think he has less time than everyone else, but the reality is none of us knows the number of days we have and we could die at any moment.  Jack is simply more aware of this than most people his age.


First love – Jack develops a crush on Miss Marquez but faces rejection. His emotional turmoil highlights the challenges of growing up and experiencing unreciprocated feelings.


Isolation and Loneliness – Jack’s lived a secluded life, interacting only with his parents and his tutor. He yearns to be with the other kids, but once he begins to face his own mortality, he also feels isolated from them, as they do not understand what he is facing.

Obviously, there is commentary on queer culture and the importance of acceptance – from others, our family, and ourselves. There is a constant spotlight on the desire to live authentically to one’s self in this film.


Gender roles and Identity feature heavily throughout. Nathan Lane’s transformation into Val’s mother highlights the fluidity of gender roles and the complexity of self-expression while also underlying the way one must wear masks to meet the expectations of others and the expectations of social norms.

For the most part, the script worked. It ended on a high note for sure. And got us hyped for the final film in the trilogy.

And I'm glad it wasn't the predictable "Golden Boy gets the touchdown to win and gets the girl." No, they were smart enough to save the proposal storyline for the final part of the trilogy. If they'd blown that here, we'd need a whole breakup/redemption arc and now we can skip that (hopefully).

I still had a lot of issues with it. There weren't enough callbacks to the first season to help people who didn't start watching until Taylor was a guest star. A lot of people didn't see the significance of being down by 10 points, as that was more of a call back to the people who were watching WAY back.

After a stranger leaves him a secluded property, drifter Rusty finds himself the caretaker of a massive, tooth-filled mouth in the ground…and it’s hungry. 


His situation is complicated by Abigail, a wannabe filmmaker who stumbles on the secret. Together, the odd pair set out to discover the origins of Mouth and the hidden history of its former owner, setting in motion an outlandish scheme that could endanger them all.
