Honestly I wouldn’t go so far as to say Free Guy’s amazing, but it was pretty fun. Some cringe but also some charm. Just a perfectly harmless movie that sure does exist

It wasn’t the worst film ever to be honest. It was fun, but it’s nothing to write home about unless you like the aesthetic

It was alright, but also extraordinarily forgettable.

This does not erase the film’s place in Reynolds’ filmography or the enjoyment of many viewers. Be that as it may, it offers important experiences into the impulsive idea of publicity and the difficulties of translating popular ideas into truly impactful cinema. However, regardless of its downfall, the film performed very well at the global box office as it procured a sum of $331.5 million against a budget of around $120 million.
