Thoughts on The Unicorn

ThoughtsThe Unicorn is a film that is about a couple trying to figure out what they want with their future over one night, with their wild night turning into wondering whether they would go through with a threesome or not. This does seem like there is a lot of filler that just seems to be the same thing going over and over, making the discussion that is going on. The acting isn’t bad, the leading pair both bring the quirky figures through the different events, while the supporting cast make the most of their limited scenes. We do get the message about finding someone that loves you to make you happy, but it takes too long to get there.

Final Thoughts The Unicorn is a basic comedy about being in love and following the traditions at your own pace.
