It currently sits at 33 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, and its Big-esque plot—which involves Schumer’s character getting bopped on the head and subsequently believing she’s a supermodel with rock-hard abs—is getting skewered for its tone-deaf approach to body positivity. That hasn’t stopped people from seeing it, however; like moths to the flame, our jaded age is irrevocably drawn to schadenfreude. Take actor and Oscar-nominated filmmaker Greta Gerwig, for example, whose baffled, frenzied reaction to the film was live-tweeted by one intrepid moviegoer.

Also, some movies simply demand live commentary, and the Lady Bird director had it in spades.
