‘The Bubble’ (2022) (1/10)

The Bubble desperately tried to capture the cultural zeitgeist of the early 2020s more than any other movie released in 2022, and also ended up being one of that year’s worst films. It revolves around the filming of a blockbuster movie in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, attempting to find comedy in all the ways that things like quarantine measures and isolating make film production more difficult. It’s unfortunate then that for a comedy, The Bubble has next to no laughs. Even if COVID hasn’t gone away (and may never truly vanish), jokes about it were only funny for a very limited time, if at all. The Bubble may as well have been written by an A.I. mining and recycling popular Tweets and memes about COVID-19 from the pandemic’s early days, hastily shoving them into a scattershot screenplay.
