'The Peanut Butter Falcon' Review: Shia and Zack Go Together Like Peanut Butter and Jelly

'The Peanut Butter Falcon' Review: Shia and Zack Go Together Like Peanut Butter and Jelly

Today’s screening of ‘The Peanut Butter Falcon’ is a perfect example of why more theater chains need to stop acquiescing to social ingrates and adopt Alamo Drafthouse’s strict no talking, no texting, no arriving late policy.

The story behind how Zack Gottsagen, an actor with Down syndrome, came to star in The Peanut Butter Falcon

Among other distractions, two ladies directly in front of us had no qualms chatting throughout the film. Strike one. A gentleman directly behind us managed to successfully smuggle multiple grocery bags of food and beverage contraband into the theater and had no reservations rifling through them every five minutes, all while resting his bare feet atop our neighboring seat. Strike two. Lastly, a large group of geriatrics arrived (picture a caravan of senior citizens using walkers with healthcare aids helping them along) HALFWAY through the movie, disturbing everyone and everything in their wake. Strike three … WE’RE OUT!

Distractions aside, ‘The Peanut Butter Falcon’ is a wonderful film that is galvanized from the opening scene to the last by the genuine connection between Shia LaBeouf and his co-star, Zack Gottsagen. Sure, there are parts of the film that are unnecessarily unrealistic—even flat-out nonsensical—but given the essence of the movie, sometimes a little imagination and suspension of disbelief are necessary to savor the day.

Rating: 7.5/10

A modern Mark Twain style adventure story, THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON tells the story of Zak (Gottsagen), a young man with Down syndrome, who runs away from a residential nursing home to follow his dream of attending the professional wrestling school of his idol, The Salt Water Redneck (Thomas Haden Church).
