Actor, Bob Odenkirk, known for his role in the Better Call Saul television series, plays the role of a middle-class dad and husband, works at a 9-5 job, and lives a life resembling Groundhog Day where everything seems repetitive and mundane. His character, Hutch Mansell, finds out his daughter’s beloved cat bracelet is gone, and this revelation affects the course of the entire movie.
Overall, “Nobody” perfectly combines drama with dynamic action while unifying the smallest details into a complete package!
Parents in the Know
|Common Sense Media: Nobody (2021)|
|Common Sense Media outlines the details of the language, violence, sex, etc so that parents can determine whether this movie is suitable for their children. The site suggests the movie is for 16 years of age and over. |
Just as Hutch covers the eyes of his young daughter when they come up from their home’s basement, I would definitely cover the eyes of younger movie viewers. There’s not much in terms of sexual content, however the movie is filled with violent scenes of knives in people, bullets flying, and people suffocating. Despite these scenes, the movie has little ‘scare factor’ since most of the violence is done to protect, with good intent, and sometimes humorously (retirement home scene).
The movie is definitely meant for adult viewing.
My Favorite Quote
Despite not being a fan of vulgar language, this is my favorite quote of the movie. The temperament and understating nature was perfectly delivered…
“Sneaky devil. F***ing kitty-cat bracelet.”
