Every little thing All over the place All At As soon as (2022) – FlixChatter Movie Weblog


With a title like Every little thing All over the place All At As soon as, one can’t anticipate a tidy film the place all the things is in place and an ending tied with a giant pink bow. It’s a film completely timed for its launch… tax season is upon us and everyone seems to be into the multiverse. The 2 utterly unrelated issues are in some way blended collectively right here as Michelle Yeoh performs a middle-aged Chinese language immigrant who’s struggling to complete her taxes.

Evelyn and her husband Waymond (Ke Huy Quan) run a laundromat and at first of the film, she’s completely overwhelmed by all of the tax papers and a heap of receipts piled up on her eating desk. I even have an auntie who’s not the tidiest particular person on the planet and her home form of jogs my memory of Evelyn’s the place each single nook is stuffed with stuff.


Tax will not be the one factor stressing her out. Her marriage isn’t precisely rosy, and she or he’s wired about her aged dad who’s coming to go to (the legendary James Hong). On high of that, her homosexual daughter Pleasure (Stephanie Hsu) brings her girlfriend to introduce to her grandpa. Now, it doesn’t matter what ethnic background you come from, I’m positive one can relate to a mom’s fear about tips on how to deal with such a situation.

The primary cause I used to be interested by this film is Michelle Yeoh and ultimately, she stays the explanation the film didn’t utterly disintegrate below all chaotic sequences that virtually assault your senses from begin to end. I assume Evelyn’s messy home is a harbinger of what’s to return within the film.


I’m not too clear about how the multiverse idea truly works within the film. The alternate model of Waymond tries to clarify issues to Evelyn however all the information comes at you so quick as he’s all the time on the run. One factor for positive, he’s satisfied Evelyn is the one who may save the complete multiverse from an ominous villain known as Jobu Tupaki. There are numerous references (whether or not it’s a jibe or homage is as much as the viewers) to every kind of pop references from MCU, Star Wars to Ratatouille. Talking of MCU, the Russos are the exec producers of this film.


That is the primary time I noticed a film Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, as The Daniels, got here to prominence because of Swiss Military Man. I haven’t seen that film but however the premise sounds actually, actually bizarre. Nicely, this one seems to be in the identical realm, however you could possibly say the multiverse premise appears to extend its weird degree tenfold. It’s a loopy, trippy, action-packed journey by time and house the place extra is a advantage, particularly when thrown collectively abruptly at supersonic velocity. 

Regardless of the seemingly convoluted mess and frenetic motion, the core of the story is about household and residing the very best life… now what one considers ‘finest’ could also be totally different after one goes by a roller-coaster collection of occasions.


I really like the ensemble solid, led by Yeoh taking part in a number of roles that she tackles with aplomb. I usually see Yeoh in roles the place she’s clever, calm, and all the time in management. It’s fairly thrilling to see her in such a job the place she may barely maintain issues collectively that will get her to flex her comedic muscle mass. She’s merely spectacular on this film. Quan, who I’m not as accustomed to aside from his function in Indiana Jones 2, is properly paired with Yeoh as she goes by a number of universes and performs an alternate model of themselves. 

Jamie Lee Curtis is fairly hilarious because the tax auditor. Like a lot of the actors right here, she will get to play totally different roles that flex her appearing muscle mass. Each actresses are nonetheless extraordinarily match to drag off all of the bodily calls for the function requires, and so they work splendidly collectively. Jenny Slate and Harry Shum Jr. even have some memorable comedic scenes.


Now, I’ve to confess I don’t all the time discover the film pleasurable and the frenetic motion and the fixed zip-zapping of the totally different variations of the characters is a bit an excessive amount of for my mind. A number of the scenes are downright insane, esp. when the characters should comply with particular, usually weird directions in an effort to ‘leap’ to a unique realm. I received’t spoil it for you however let’s simply say a few of them are fairly graphic and tasteless.


I really welcome the quieter moments, akin to when Evelyn and Waymond are occupying their film star identities. There’s a little bit of affect of the elegant In The Temper For Love which is such a welcome respite from the manic vitality of a lot of the film. The ‘rocks’ scene can also be one in every of my favourite moments within the film that’s hilarious in addition to shifting.

I used to be extra enamored by Michelle Yeoh than the film itself. There’s a sensory overload from the myriads of concepts being erratically thrown collectively that the familial and philosophical themes usually get misplaced amidst the chaos. That stated, I applaud the originality of the filmmakers’ imaginative and prescient and the ingenious filmmaking type. It’s uncommon to see one thing that’s not like something you’ve seen earlier than, since most movies as of late are remakes, sequels, or primarily based on an present IP. That alone is kind of a feat, so all issues thought of, Every little thing All over the place All At As soon as is a exceptional achievement from The Daniels.
