In his first-ever Netflix Comedy Judd Apatow has tried to do something different but seems to have failed miserably so far. Apatow is known for his unfiltered comedy-style movie took a risk with his new movie “The Bubble” which feels like two hours long stretch and it also does not feel appropriate to show a pandemic-based comedy when the Government around the world are making the decision to lift COVID-19 restrictions.
The Bubble shows the story of how some courageous actors are bringing pleasure to the people around the world who are stuck in their homes through movies and T.V. shows. The man who is at the center stage of all this is Gavin (Peter Serafinowicz) who is the producer and is making Cliff Beasts 6, a Sharknado movie franchise that does not age well. He brings back Carol Cobb (Karen Gillan) psychopathic actress who needs this movie to save her career. Carol was removed from the cast of the fifth movie alongside her the other cast includes Lauren (Leslie Mann), Dieter (Pedro Pascal), Dustin (David Duchovny), and the action star of the film, Sean (Keegan-Michael Key). And if this was not enough the lines that she was supposed to read are now given to a TikTok star Krystal (Iris Apatow). The cast of mad and chesty people is struggling to complete the film under trying circumstances.
The Bubble is directed by Judd Apatow and co-written by Pam Brady and is simply too heavily invested in insider winks at Hollywood even for a comedy movie. And that to so greatly that the jokes also stumble upon as less grounded. Even if the Humour is directed at the character’s dedication to their work the film still makes fun of working-class folks like waitresses, for their reputation for serving food to people during a pandemic.
Some of the things that The Bubble does well gets an astonishing amount of cameos which include the likes of Daisy Ridley, James McAvoy, and Benedict Cumberbatch.
