Watch Sorry to Bother You full movie online free – Over-hyped and trying too hard to be weird. Completely showcases the stereotypes it is trying to break. There is no originality here, it is lost when the underlying social message is the same as pretty much every movie Hollywood is putting out right now.

Sorry to Bother You review by Yee_Reviews – Ambitious, Yet Scattered
Good: The concept was original and different and the first two-thirds of the movie were interesting/engaging. The film is filled with talent from Tessa Thompson to Armie Hammer. But the true standout is Lakeith Stanfield’s character who is relatable with his struggles and goal in life of making a difference and mattering in the world. I do like the themes the film tackles like the corruption of big companies with its hunger for power and money.
Bad: The film bounces around too much with its subplots. Near the end, the story goes for more of a shock value and the social problems it started to develop gets lost in a bad acid trip. Some of the ideas and characters were not fully developed as a result of the film being fast paced and messy. I personally did not find the jokes funny, but my audience was laughing for the most part.
Overall: This film is a political satire so it is not for everyone, however I believe there is a certain crowd that will absolutely admire this film and praise it for its originality and humor. The film juggles too much, but I appreciate Boots Riley’s first time directorial debut ambitions.
Sorry to Bother You review by Ed-Shullivan – Catch a new rising star!
Sorry to Bother You is a refreshing new entry that combines comedy, fantasy and even a bit of science-fiction so although this film may not appeal to everybody’s taste in what is a good cinematic experience it will sustain conversation around the water cooler the next day at your place of work, or over the phone when talking to your close friends and family.
The film certainly reflects well on the film’s main star Lakeith Stanfield who plays telemarketer Cassius Green who rises quickly through the ranks in his call center. Does the film make sense? No, not for most film fans but the concept is refreshing and it will appeal to open minded theater goers looking for something different and with a few fresh faces on the silver screen rather than the same old, same old, comedy/rom/com films that the film studios push out quicker than the world’s population growth.
What I think everyone will see in this film is the untapped (to date) natural comedic talent of fresh face new actor Jermaine Fowler who got his first foot in the door with the comedy television series Superior Donuts. (You can read my full review dated February 02nd, 2017.). Watch this film and see if you don’t agree that Jermaine Fowler’s character “Salvador” should have been featured more in this his first big role in a feature film.
I give the film a decent 7 out of 10 rating!
Good luck Jermaine Fowler…a new rising star!!!!!
Sorry to Bother You review by Travishouze – “Sorry to Bother You”, But Your Going to Want To Stay on the Line for This
Sorry to Bother You is quite possibly the most insane movie I’ve seen this year. In a year of films Hereditary, and A Wrinkle in Time, none of the trailers really prepare for the insanity that ensues within the film. Wether it all comes together well or not is up for debate. I’m going to try my best not to spoil much because there’s a lot to unpack.
Lakeith Stanfield delivers as the charming Cassius Green, a young down on his luck guy who applies to a telemarketing job and is encouraged to use his “white voice” in order to succeed. During his eventual rise within the company, he begins to see the shady tactics his business entails, but becomes increasingly passive as he benefits, until he finds out the ugliest truths.
One thing the film does great is visually describing the crazy world it takes place within. There are many times the camera would cut to something crazy happening in the background and doesn’t take to the time to explain what or why, but instead tells to just go with it. It’s ambition alone makes it one of the more refreshing films to come from a person of colors film in the multiplex theater lately.
The double edged sword comes from the last 30-40 minutes of the movie. It’s hard to describe and hard to process as the film spends much of your time thinking it’s a satire but goes one way that makes it even question how we got to this point. It does make the film feel a bit uneven in what the overall message is of the movie, or if director Boots Riley didn’t want you to think too deeply in the first place, which would be commendable.
Sorry to Bother You will make you laugh and make you squeal at the same time. It’s takes advantage of what you think it will be about and turn you upside down. While it is uneven, and feels a bit longer than the runtime claims, this is one call you don’t want to hang up on too early.
Sorry to Bother You review by Jmkosinski – Totally unpredictable
Hilarious and nearly impossible to figure out where the movie is going to go next. The corporate satire is appropriate for the moment and the dystopian future is silly enough that it works. This movie doesn’t take itself too seriously.
The performances are what set this apart from just being a good comedy. Lakeith Stanfield brings the stoned, skeptical, world-weary vibe of Darius from Atlanta. Armie Hammer dominates as usual and Tessa Thompson is luminescent and serves as much more than just the necessary love interest.
Sorry to Bother You review by bastille-852-731547 – Hysterical, Thoughtful Satire
I walked into this movie at an advance screening expecting something unique, but nothing could have prepared me for the sheer brilliance of this satirical masterwork. Hilarious from beginning to end while also subversive, this film joins some of the finest satires of its generation–from “South Park” to some of the best episodes of “Saturday Night Live” to “Wild Tales.”
The story follows Cassius, an African-American telemarketer in Oakland. When told to use his “white voice” on the job while making calls, he quickly rises through the ranks of his profession–and ends up getting a hefty promotion. All of a sudden, things start to spiral out of control. I definitely won’t give anything else away, as doing so would spoil what clearly must be experienced for oneself. The film’s script is incredibly strong and is consistently hilarious. I laughed more while watching this film than any other movie in recent memory. Its dialogue is not only humorous, but incredibly frank and on-the-nose in its brutal honesty. The film’s social consciousness and commentary intersect in ways that are thoughtful, snappy, and deeply rooted in (often unfortunately) a sense of genuine realism. Yet the film’s image of the world is not equal to our society with microscopic precision, as its humor often tends to look at current societal issues with the mirror of a macabre fun-house.
Performances in the film are outstanding throughout, and the film is incredibly engaging throughout its run time. Free of pacing issues, it moves at a fast pace and twists and turns so unusually that one will never know what could happen next. This erratic nature is truly part of the film’s genius. If such a style of narrative filmmaking was attempted to be used as a technique in almost any other film, it would fail miserably, but Boots Riley was able to commendably stay one step ahead of audiences while making them laugh profusely and question why and how our society may be in deep-seated decline. Also noteworthy is the film’s soundtrack, which is a superb mix of rap and pop. The movie can often be strange, but viewers will be all the more thankful for its genuine audaciousness upon the film’s conclusion.
Riley’s ambitious filmmaking has a variety of possible influences (Spike Lee, Jordan Peele, Alejandro Inarritu, Charles Kaufman) yet feels wholly original–and genuinely, howlingly funny and socially relevant despite being so unconventional–from beginning to end.
Sorry to Bother You review by jared-b-ware – Most Important Film Made In Recent History
Part of the issue with these reviews is that they’re written by folks who are too comfortable with the status quo (carceral racial capitalism, imperialism, bourgeois politics) in America. Most of us are not, and this film speaks for us like nothing else that has ever come out of Hollywood.
Boots Riley does an amazing job crafting the narrative, building in large scale metaphors, weaving in surrealism or magical realism, and featuring the city of Oakland as a character within the film.
This is a revolutionary work of art, and it cannot be compared to other films coming out of Hollywood. And if we’re being honest there is nothing else like it.
It’s a stunning debut film and I hope that Boots Riley builds with it a platform for more anti-capitalist films for himself and other directors and writers who are bold enough to challenge the status quo.
Sorry to Bother You review by Badheadcontent – Blaxploitation is our strength
This is exactly what you get when Random Film Studio HR implements diversity hiring practices. A movie by diversity hires, for diversity hires. If you’re one, and think it’s a good thing, you’ll love this and won’t even be bothered by the “plot”. However if you compare this movie to every other movie, or even every over comedy, OR EVEN every other blaxploitation film (which this is, in a postmodern way, of course), it’s just kind of meh, disjointed and vacuous. It pretends to be satire when really, it’s just preaching to the usual gang. Paul Verhoeven makes satire. This? this has an agenda that can be seen from space. It doesn’t need to be a movie since there’s nothing cinematic about it. It’s television on a big screen; a double episode, let’s say. Look at the poster, you know if you want to see it or not. There’s really absolutely nothing in the movie that cannot be deduced from the poster.
Sorry to Bother You review by Mtrusk – Rebellious social cinema using all of the artform’s tools
Here is a filmmaker who does not feel limited by what has come before him. Boots Riley is not afraid to take his message to its absurdist extreme; he knows that film and fiction are more than just the mundanities of the real world. You will not see him resort to melodrama to convince the viewer as lesser new filmmakers on the scene have been doing. Riley understands the unique opportunities available to telling a story through the medium of film: live action, animation, comedy, drama, clever scene transitions, bold use of color, amazing original music, all on display here. Lakeith Stanfield as usual does a fantastic job of letting you understand his character. The soundtrack by The Coup only enhances how much of a creative explosion this film is. It’s not perfect; some jokes could be rewritten and a couple scenes could have been streamlined, but in the end this is one of the most original films of the year. Riley goes all out to let the viewer contemplate the injustices we as a society are willing to endure before inciting real change.
Sorry to Bother You review by Subxerogravity – It does try hard to be brilliant, but in that effort it is.
A lot more bizarre than the trailer makes it out to be, and good for a few laughs
This movie went to a place I would have never expected from watching the trailer. You can tell director, Boots Riley was about to go out of the box, but this cat was trying to destroy it.
You’re either going to love how strange the movie gets or hate it how really stupid it gets, but I think it’s going to go down in history like Fight Club. It’s going to be one of those cult classic that people talk about and go see at midnight movie events.
Aside from that, I’m really digging this new cat Lakeith Stanfield. I think he’s got a chance to be one of the best out there.
So Sorry to Bother You, bottom line, not as funny as I thought it was going to be but I do like how surreal it gets.
Sorry to Bother You review by rockman18 – Sorry to Bother You (2018)
Let me start off by saying I love Donald Glover’s show, Atlanta. Fantastic show, and one of the best characters on that show is played by Lakeith Stanfield. This film had a weirdly interesting premise (based on the trailer) and a musician directing his first film. I was always going to see it. This film is something else. It’s a hell of a trip but a very good debut for Boots Riley who manages to make a very fun and unique film. This is going to be a vehicle for Lakeith and Boots.
The film is about a man named Cassius Green who desperately needs a job and luckily lands one for a telemarketing agency called Regalview. He becomes extremely successful closing sales, after using a “white” voice to connect with the customers on the phone. He eventually moves up to the upper echelon of callers, called a power caller. He soon starts losing his morals and the relationship with his lover and friends until he realizes the truth about what his new job entails.
As mentioned earlier, this film is a hell of a debut for Boots Riley. I don’t know if he was trippin’ or if some of this came to him in a dream, but its wild. The film is crazy at times. The film tackles crazy ideas while still remaining funny and entertaining the whole way true. It’s a film that isn’t afraid to be relevant in talking about capitalism, mistreatment of the working class, and a dystopian future brought upon by the rich.
Lakeith works well as a leading man and Tessa Thompson is also on the rise as she’s in a lot of big films recently and I’d love to see more of both. Cassius’s character is easy to identify with because he’s a man who works hard and soon lives the dream of getting the riches. His character answers the question of whether we could lose ourselves and our morals in success. Overall, really enjoyable though I think it’s not for everyone. I can see this reaching cult status down the line.
