Free Guy the hilarious new movie starring Ryan Reynolds and Taika Waititi is now in theaters and trust it does not disappoint. Not on the video game Easter eggs, Disney flex, or sheer awesomeness. 10/10 would recommend this one and it looks like Disney is wanting a sequel. Sweet because [insert catchphrase here] it totally deserves it.
