I went into Happy Death Day with low expectations, thinking it would be a fun yet cheesy horror movie. I was right about one thing: it's very, very fun. Now, don't let the frightening trailer fool you: this is a not a very scary movie. Yes, there are some tense moments, usually followed by a jump scare, and there was moderate PG-13 violence, but this movie succeeds more in its one-liners than its death sequences. There are tons of good jokes from Jessica Rothe, who is the best part of this movie by far. And there is a twist, it's not very memorable, but it's smart and well thought out, and it leads to a very satisfying end fight scene. Despite the misleading marketing, Happy Death Day is an hilarious and entertaining horror/comedy.
