Collateral Beauty Trailer - Will Smith

When I saw the trailer for Collateral Beauty, I thought to myself, “Huh, that looks incredibly treacly and saccharine, but maybe I could be a sucker for that type of thing?” Then the extremely negative reviews started rolling in and I felt I oddly compelled check this film out to see how it could possibly be as terrible as critics were saying it was.

Suffice it to say, I was not let down. Collateral Beauty is morally reprehensible and a stunning miscalculation on almost every level. It has the dialogue and tone of a Christmas special or a sitcom, but its plot feels straight out of horror film or dark comedy. Add to that a trailer that feels genetically engineered to deceive people about not only the nature but the basic story of the film, and you have a film that is bound to shock and surprise people.

Below, find my SPOILER-filled podcast review of the film with Matt Singer from ScreenCrush. You can also check out Matt’s review.
