    The line" In another life I would have liked to do laundry and taxes with you"broke me in a new way I've never felt before.

      This is like the animation UP, where the old man finds, upon reading his dead wife’s diary, that she just loved being at home with him, and adventuring in the garden versus her ‘big life adventure’ plans she originally had when young.

    I just have to point out how FKN AMAZING Stephanie Hsu is. Everyone seems to be getting so much praise EXCEPT her (including with the lack of nominations for her). That scene where she starts singing “sucked into a bagel”… I get fkn CHILLS every time I see it. It’s comedic yet she is delivering a stone cold serious performance in that moment. Did anyone even notice the tear that falls from her lifeless face? She is delivering one of the most profound expressions of PAIN I have EVER seen in my life… all within a scene that is intended to have a comedic tone.
    She. Is. BRILLIANT.

      @T Kim thank you for explaining that so well for others. It’s 100% true. I am a first generation American (second gen immigrant) and my mother couldn’t understand my struggles whatsoever because when she was in her youth, she was a poor farm girl who started working at age 7 along with her 10 siblings. Finland has 6 months of winter so she was LITERALLY the parent who had to walk “10 miles in the snow to get to school every day”. So when I dealt with social issues in school, with depression, emotional neglect (by her)… of course she didn’t understand it because her upbringing was a struggle just to survive. Even with school curriculum matters, she was useless to help me because why am I having trouble learning Latin when she had to learn FIVE different languages in school (and is still fluent in them). Matters of gender inequality didn’t compute for my mom because Finland has long been a leader in equality and girls are treated the same as the boys there. It’s a COMPLETELY different world for us here in America so foreign mothers are ESPECIALLY hard on us daughters because we are supposed to turn out tough as nails… just like them.

      @Bryll Botardo being raised by an immigrant mother in America is what matters. It’s not the same if you’re raised in another country. The father can be an immigrant too but the mother/daughter dynamic is the specific thing. The household can be an Asian household anywhere in the world.

    I remember watching this for the first time with my Mom. I’ve suffered from chronic depression for over thirteen years and there have been days when I’m sunk into a pit of darkness like Jobu where I just want to be sucked into my own bagel for the pain to stop.
    Once we finished the movie, my mom teared up and told me that she’s always going to reach into the bagel and pull me out when I get there each time.
    And that meant so much to me.

      I watched this movie with my mother.
      In the first 20 minutes i saw only my mother on Evelyn, and i did so many jokes about it, but my mom was avoiding it.
      And when Joy asked to go to her mother, mine's said: she is going to say no.
      And then it hit me,(for real) my mother is Evelyn without the character improvement.
      The worst is, after all this, she still in the end of the movie try to hug me. Tough. I didn't wanted her being like "minha filha" - My daughter in portuguese. I wanted just my mom actually seeing me.

    My mom and I watched this together in the cinema. We were holding hands and weeping for basically the last half of the movie. We both knew we had a tough time when I was a kid. We didn't have the ways to communicate it until we saw this together. This film healed us and I saw that we were both the daughter and both the mother.

    Crazy Rich Asians and Key Quan's resurgence in film are actually making me want to try acting again. As an Asian-American woman who had a talent agent for 3 years back when I was in college hoping to make it to support my family financially, the roles I auditioned for back then left me feeling bereft of hope. This movie makes me want to dream again.

    Also, as an Asian American (tho my mixed family definitely adopted plenty of “I love you”s) it was really gratifying and rewarding to me that in the whole resolution she never says “I love you”. A really great and nuanced representation, good screenwriting because it doesn’t feel too on the nose, but also it’s a really great demonstration that expressing love without saying “I love you” can be so valid and deep and meaningful, even moreso than saying it. Truth in general and great representation.

    The rock scene, unbelievably, is the part where the waterworks have started in my first watch in that movie. This has to be the first time Evelyn and Jobu/Joy can finally sit together and look each other in the eye without going down into miscommunication, unsaid words, and killing each other. Most especially when Rock Evelyn is trying to reach out for her daughter. God, no one will ever believe me if I told them that the saddest scene I ever watched in a film is the part where a pair of rocks discussed humanity's place in the world and how they have a heartfelt talk between mother and daughter.

    This movie hit me hard, I was diagnosed in my 30s with adhd. Honestly I wish I could put it into words, but this film nails it so perfectly, it's hard for me to verbalise.
    I'd like to see an episode about that.
    Because women are under diagnosed and so many go through life not knowing why their minds are full of chaos. Plus it's genetic so a lot of undiagnosed women, have daughters with adhd. This movie felt like it was about mothers and daughters who both share a weird, wonderful, chaotic universe, but can't stop disappointing themselves and clashing with each other.
    Seriously that ending, it made me want to show this film to my Mum but I worry it will break her heart to watch it. It's profoundly resonant.

      so so crazy. I watched this for the first time with my mum and brother bc I figured they'd like it esp since my mum is from hong kong (this movie is full of all three languages she's fluent in!) and I didn't realise quite how much the characters would reflect our relationship. my mum is from hong kong as I said, her grandparents lived there and so I hardly ever saw them and they didn't speak any english so there was that language barrier. I am THE queer child and my mum is actually very supportive, more supportive than eveline I think haha, but she's not bothering with telling our family in hong kong bc she thinks it'll just be too messy (not important to me though. idm). and ALSO I am like fully convinced that my mum has adhd and I'm mostly(?) convinced that it was passed down to me. like they are literally us. it's crazy. also made it kinda awkward to watch together tbh bc we do not really talk to each other about our feelings :')
      I am generally much more positive than joy btw. don't worry about that haha
      also I just realised this was kinda random to throw down as a reply to this comment but I've been thinking about me and my mum's (maybe) adhd and I'm afab so if I've got adhd, it'd be more in line with the kinda afab adhd since I was raised that way yk

      I would love to see them tackle it too.
      It's kind of an interesting result of the initial lockdowns from the pandemic, that thousands of middle-aged women both realized they had undiagnosed ADHD and finally got diagnosed. Some was the stress that pushed symptoms to the forefront, some was being with their kids with diagnosed ADHD all day and really seeing the similarities, but a lot of it was that all the structures that were holding us together were just gone.
      So many of us were using the forced schedule of society to just kinda get by, with many of us feeling like failures because it's so hard. But once they were gone, a lot of women both fell apart, but also had the time and space to say "Wait...this can't be right. What is this?" and look it up.
      It's stunning that generations of women have been missed because we weren't disruptive as kids. It makes me so grateful for Gen Z and the internet. Because mental illness topics are just normal things for them to talk about, they've kinda brought us all along with them.

      I saw it in a similar way, not as a direct relation to the society, not about nihilism or about internet effect as some described, I simply saw it as the fight of Evelyn spirit, all dimensions are simply her mental voices, her regrets, her hopes, her idealization about her or her husband, the vision of her daughter represented by almost an enemy because in real life this relation is a real big problem and she feels like she is out of control, it is a fight of idea vs emotions... a big metaphor of the inside of our brain fighting with too much idea and emotion. That is the way I saw it and I really respect any other interpretation about that movie, this is the beauty about cinema, every person can have his own interpretation and it is ok, getting the good one is not important as long as you have a good time watching the movie.

    If you do a villain therapy on Dierdre, please please address that the disgust the audience feels about the hot dog world mirrors the disgust Evelyn feels about homosexuality and learns to change her mind about. It was very impactful to me and I think many people don't understand the importance of the hot dog fingers and how they relate to Evelyn's experience of homophobia. I haven't seen a single other film that gets the audience to relate to that state of mind in such a subtle and accurate way

      I think it’s also a great callback to the first “tell Deirdre you love her, and mean it” joke from earlier. Because there is a world in which that makes total sense, and while it’s played for absurdity in the moment, it foreshadows how the thing that ultimately solves this mess is love and acceptance and compassion.

    Regarding the famous hot dog fingers, I think its meant to convey how really anything can exist within infinite multiverses AND I also think the film is trying not to take itself seriously and to give us a break in the form of humor. Humor and silliness are very underrated in our world, at the current time we live in. But I believe they are also needed to survive and to not let the weight of the other stuff completely swallow us whole. They give us a chance to continue riding the rollercoaster of life.

    Throughout the movie the fighting style she is using is called Wing Chun. It is a completely defensive fighting style based on using your opponents momentum against themselves as a defense instead of offensively hiring them. It is a very nice subtle wink at the entire point he makes at the end of the film! 😁

    I related way to hard to the struggles of Joy. The spiraling well of nihilism and depression and the problems with her mother hit me too hard. When Joy said “But I’m tired. I don’t wanna hurt anymore and for some reason with I’m with you it just hurts the both of us.” That hit me so deep because I’ve felt that exact feeling before. I don’t feel attached to anything anymore and the one thing that has kept me going in times of facing death was the little things, breathing air, watching the clouds move, listening to rain and seeing leaves blow in the wind. That’s what kept me going. One of the messages of the movie is that nothing matters so you get to decide what matters to you in your life and that really shifted my jaded perspective. This will definitely be one of my go-to moves to lift me up.

      Literally yes. Everything you say is accurate. Jobu Tupaki felt like a living manifestation of all of my dark thoughts. When you have noone to turn to and have to figure out a way to save yourself, it's painful. You experience enough shit in life and it leaves you desensitized to most things. That's what I've become. I used to be deeply feeling and nowadays no amount of happy or sad news really fazes me anymore.

    This movie made me cry deeply for much of its runtime. I remember a time, drunkenly hanging off my friend, I argued with a coworker that nothing matters but the connections we make and the people we leave behind. We are nothing but the ties that bind us. We leave nothing behind that means anything but the impact we had on the people we love. If we aren't kind, if we don't build community, we have nothing and all is lost. My childhood was taken from me by parents with a deep desire to prove themselves to their own parents and in turn, they abused me heavily. I only didn't take my own life because of the kindness of others, because of the kindness of librarians and teachers, because of the parents of friends that would feed me when I was hungry or scared to go home. It took me a long time to be able to share that kindness instead of internalizing the hate and giving up on the world. Hate and anger kept me going until it nearly killed me. I wish I could've been kinder sooner.

      Here's one thing about Mandarin and Cantonese you guys might not know. Gong Gong speaks Cantonese so he is likely from Hong Kong, while Waymond speaks Mandarin so he is from Mainland China. Back in those days, Hong Kong people tend to look down on Mainlanders so perhaps that is why Gong Gong does not approve of her relationship with Waymond. He sees Waymond as a loser type not fit for his precious daughter.

    I watched this movie for the first time on my birthday and I think it was exactly what I needed. My dad died a month after my birthday and I always feel really depressed when it comes around-- I had nothing to do with his death, but I can't shake the feeling that it's my fault he died. Like, if I wasn't born, my mom wouldn't have suffered that loss. So Joy's character and dialogue really really spoke to me and... I don't know, I don't want to get too sentimental. I know it'll probably always be hard to not associate my birthday with my grief. But I feel like watching EEAAO on my birthday was a good step towards healing. That's honestly a priceless gift. Movies are absolutely unique in the ways they can communicate and impact lives

    I totally agree that it feels like we’ve been robbed of Ke Huy Quan’s potential acting work for decades. But to Alpha Waymond’s point, every setback, rejection, and disappointment has led to this moment in time where we have this masterclass of a performance in a masterpiece of a film. Would this film even be what it is without Quan having endured what he did? EEAAO can be so meta when viewed through various lenses like this. I can’t wait to see what these phenomenal actors do next. Also, love these takes on the film 👍🏼 I shed tears all over again with each reaction video I watch.

It has everything, from the poignant thoughts on what our purpose is here, the most laugh-out-loud moments I've ever experienced (that rock scene and Raccacoonie broke me), and insanely awesome fight scenes with choreography on the level of a John Wick film. And the level of acting on display was incredible, everyone especially Stephanie Hsu did an amazing job.. To be able to switch between the alternate universe personas so seamlessly is really a credit to their acting skill.

    Right after I saw the movie I thought about you guys, and I'm so happy that you made this video. I will watch every single thing you do about it, and I have a request. As a person with ADHD I screamed when Waymond said "you are capable of anything because you are bad at everything", and I had to pause and do a little research. I found out that one of the directors decided to research ADHD when they were writing the movie, and he started to suspect he had ADHD. He later got diagnosed and his life improved a lot. I think this movie could really help a lot of people like me, and honestly everyone who wants to know what it's like to have ADHD. I would LOVE to hear what's your take on this. please please please please

    Something you didn’t mention (maybe didn’t know!) is that the flipside of the nihilism coin present in this movie is Zen Buddhism-which is also a philosophy that says nothing matters, but focuses on, instead of existentialism, the present moment and how beautiful and wonderful each insignificant thing is. Appreciating things for what they are instead of what they can be, taking that time to stay grounded in the present because that’s all there is.
    Most importantly for this movie, one of the meditative practices of Zen Buddhist monks is a calligraphy practice called ensō, which is drawing a circle to exist in creation and that tactility without needing a particular visual product at the end, or aiming for any level of perfection. A black circle, much like the Everything Bagel.

    But more importantly, I feel like this saved and solidified my relationship with my boyfriend. He has the same outlook on life and it used to annoy me to the point that I was wondering if our relationship was going to last. You see, we are getting to the point of I guess "pre-engagement" and are having to look at these things more seriously. This movie allowed me to see him in a whole new light. His optimism, faith, and joy are not things of a naive, dim-witted country boy (I am very much a product of the suburbs, whereas his hometown literally has one traffic light). His outlook and attitude are his armor, and that armor is probably stronger than most. I may still not understand this about him, but I absolutely love that he is like this. And, as someone who is basically Evelyn, I am so glad I found him.

    That scene about kindness is also now my favorite movie scene. I could never articulate my motivations to those who just assumed me naive. I do it because it’s exactly that: necessary. I see the suffering here. It suffocates me. It’s immense. It makes me so endlessly furious. It makes me hopeless. And the only thing that makes it bearable is forcing myself to look for the good. That isn’t always easy - finding the good; sometimes it’s hard to find the will to even try. But if I didn’t search for it, I could not endure, well, here. I am not wealthy financially, but I have abundance everywhere else from simply living moment to moment. I don’t carry the worries so many do. I feel satisfied. I feel rich. And there is no sum for which I would trade that contentment.

    I'm not sure I've ever cried as hard from a movie as I did during Waymond's speech(s). It is the most perfect positive masculinity I have ever seen across media. More than just the first time this movie and the many moments across it still bring up emotions on repeat watches.

    Growing up in Taiwan, being told that you are getting fat from your mom or relatives, meaning that they care about you and your health. It resonates so much as an Asian kid, feeling like your mom criticises your figure and not being supportive, it is heartbreaking. 😢

    Midway through the film (when Joy fights random security guards and reveals that she's a villain), my fiance turned around to me and jokingly said "this is what I imagine your brain looks like", and when the credits rolled I admitted, "yeah, an exploration of ADHD, nihilism, depression, and anxiety." I was actually stunned to find out that Evelyn was initially written to have undiagnosed adult ADHD - the attention shifts, the feeling of being pulled apart, overwhelmed, the mourning of underachieved potential until... something matters all of a sudden. It's beautiful.

    Love this film ferociously too! It's so good. I love that the first time I saw it I thought of leaving during the onslaught of the first hour or so- but it was all of that that made the meaning kick in. All my aversion transformed to openness.
    I saw it in the theater again two days later, & cried through most of what I had previously had such a hard time taking in. Beauty, gratitude, cracking open. So glad they have received such acclaim. I hope the message of kindness reaches everyone. We need it.
    Also- this is my first time on this channel, & you two are incredibly special, insightful, & present. Thank you❤

      Autistic and ADD here. I can relate to some things shown in the movie (though not all due to the other unique things I experience from being autistic). I'm hoping representation like this is able to pave the way for both autistic and ADHD representation in media, even if it is not always obvious for everyone. Subtly in itself can be a lot of fun to pick up on in stories for me.

      @Melissa Gola Evelyn shows all the signs: inattentiveness, distractibility, daydreaming, intense and highly varied interests, difficulty with task completion, emotional disregulation, utter dread of boring things (laundry and taxes), etc. Even the title of the movie is pure ADHD. Evelyn being the “worst” of infinite versions of herself perfectly captures the common ADHD struggle of having high potential and chronic underachievement. Also, early on, Deirdre accuses her of not paying attention, and Evelyn masks and denies it (a typical coping mechanism). By the end, she finds some self acceptance. Deirdre says, “Did you hear me?” And Evelyn responds (in the final line of the movie), “Sorry, what did you say?”

    I remember binge watching your reviews because I'm finding ways to cope with my anxiety and I have skipped most of my consultations due to my work schedule. When you uploaded this, I actually skipped this because I want to watch the movie first then see your review.
    I watched EEAAO because of you guys and I felt that it was the movie I was longing for. Or maybe I was really longing for my own family reconciliation. Now I'm rewatching this, I realized how I became kinder to my father (a similar personality to Evelyn) despite my resentment to him. It was pride and expectations that separated us but "none of those matters".

    I've never seen a movie that captures the kind of existential depression I've often struggled with, and the effect of being overwhelmed by information and stimulus constantly in the internet age.
    Not to mention the brilliance of the cinematography and the effects and the editing. And, of course, the acting.
    And Waymond is my hero. A perfect model of gentle masculinity.
    (Also, I *live* for that whole Wong Kar Wai sequence. So beautiful.)

    If you do do a deep dive into the dynamic to be between mother and daughter I think that you should include an Asian therapist because a lot of these elements mirror experiences that are salient among Asian parents and Asian children and that would be interesting but both topics would be equally as interesting.

      If the Oscars had any sense, Best actress would go to Michelle Yeoh, best supporting actress to Stephanie Hsu (with Jamie Lee Curtis also nominated) and Ke Huy Quand would either win Best actor or best supporting actor.
