Just now getting around to this, but FYI: while the Happy Death Day films are really more like hard PG-13's, this is a legit R, with Jason-style slasher kills and sex scenes inside of the first five minutes. Probably doesn't matter to you unless you have a kid right there at that outgrowing-PG-13-but-not-ready-for-hard-R-threshold like ours.

This must have been the easiest film pitch sale ever:

It's Freaky Friday the 13th!

Very fun. Recommend to fans of Happy Death Day.

I thought the movie was genuinely funny but the gore was a bit much. Agree this is definitely R rated.

The changing room scene, the I'm straight scene and the backseat make-out scene really made this movie so much more interesting that it had any right to be. I really enjoyed it.

Vince Vaughn was asked to do something absurd and over the top but I really felt like the performance was more nuanced than I expected. Contrast it to Jack Black in Jumanji and Vaughn hands down sells it better.
