Save Yourselves!

Comedy, Sci-fi
Save Yourselves! poster

Jack and Su are trying to be a modern couple, but they're simply too wrapped up in their digital lives. They decide to leave all the tech behind and spend a week in a cabin upstate. The moment they leave civilization behind, furry aliens land on Earth and start taking over the planet.

Reynolds and Mani are a fun duo, but their characters are a little too one-note. The premise is fun, the effects are surprisingly decent and the first half of the film does feel original, but the second part is a bit too aimless, and the comedy becomes too repetitive. Not a bad effort, but the potential was there to do better.
