Wild Canaries reminds you off the fun you can have at the movies. This is a movie that begs to be seen with an open mind and a clear heart. Seriously. Don't go into it expecting everything to make sense and trying to connect the dots. It's a hodge podge of a film that's a throwback to old screwball comedies. It doesn't need your analysis.
So take it for what it is, which is this: An old lady drops dead in a Brooklyn apartment building, and one of the tenants (Sophia Takal) becomes convinced that it wasn't purely accidental. Thus setting off a wild goose chase for a maybe-murderer. It's chock full of all the manic rambling, sexual tension, and physical comedic gags you never knew you wanted in your face all at once. —Tara Aquino
