Is there any hype at alllll for The Last Thing He Wanted with Anne Hathaway & Ben Affleck on Netflix?— Sam Astor (@SamAstorYT) February 19, 2020
It's dropping tomorrow and I'm going to review it but man... Noone is taking about this.
Not to mention the meta/rotten scores are meme worthy.
I started reading Joan Didion last year, including THE LAST THING HE WANTED, and I’m pretty bummed that movie’s getting such abysmal reviews. Maybe I’ll just stick to the (excellent) Didion documentary on Netflix...— Joe Schreiber (@JoeLesterthecat) February 19, 2020
I'm reading reviews for The Last Thing He Wanted. The film is getting some tough reviews but one in particular pissed me off to the highest level. It was very condescending and unprofessional review of Dee Rees & Anne Hathaway.— Sabrinanne2001 (@sabrinanne2001) January 31, 2020
