The movie, which Johnson made between “Star Wars” films (“The Last Jedi” and an untitled upcoming one), knows exactly what it is and leans right into it, delivering a lot of laughs along the way. It never takes itself too seriously, and the audiences went for a wild ride as the film delved into complicated family issues where everyone has secrets. Christopher Plummer plays the patriarch of a super-rich family, and his children and grandchildren are played by Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Toni Colette, Katherine Langford, Chris Evans, Don Johnson and Jaeden Martell. Ana de Armas plays Plummer’s caretaker and biggest confidante.
