Where does The Bubble land on the Banana Meter?

Hello and welcome to another weekend of the Banana Meter! For those not aware of how this works, let me explain it to you. First, our critics check out a film. Then, they rate it on our scale of 0-100%, we gather the percentage from all of your critics and that’s how we get our rating on the Banana Meter.

What is the Banana Meter scale, you ask? 

When a film hits above 85% or higher from our critics, it means it hit Bonafide Bananas status.
When a film hits between 55-84% or higher from our critics, it means it hit Ripe status.
When the film hits under 55%, it means it hit Sour Status.

Our next film to hit the Banana Meter is The Bubble

Here is what our Ripe Banana Critics are saying about the film:

Banana Meter Rating: 25%

Absolutely wild. A group of self-obsessed actors shoot a film during the lockdown in this joyous dumpster fire of a movie. The script is often unfunny and full of cringe but seeing high-caliber actors delivering that script is An Experience. Cameos you won’t believe!

Banana Meter Rating: 40%

Even though there are some genuine laugh-out-loud moments, ‘The Bubble’ get overshadowed by ridiculously frustrating moments that make us realize how privileged Hollywood stars are. It never develops into a story worth investing in.

It’s crazy how ridiculously horrible and unfunny The Bubble is.

The Bubble suffers from already being a little too irrelevant but its two hour runtime means more jokes land than miss. It also helps when you have an unhunged performance from the awesome Pedro Pascal.

Judd Apatow is at his most insufferable with Netflix’s The Bubble. It’s a headachingly unfunny and dated pandemic adjacent feature; it is not as achingly terrible as Don’t Look Up, but it’s near close to being so.

Banana Meter Rating: 25%

With his latest project The Bubble, Judd Apatow once again proves that his specific brand of humor is best left in the past. Although he successfully presents plenty of funny moments that comment on the lack of originality within Hollywood, the film as a whole is just as unoriginal and lifeless as those he condemns

A winning cast and a biting first half hour cannot keep up the pace and this bubble, sadly, doesn’t take long to burst.

Saxon Whitehead

Banana Meter Rating: 15%

The Bubble is a perfect example of how making a film that hinges on current events can backfire on you. It tries so hard to be relevant that it ends up feeling dated, and it is an absolute slog to get through. It makes almost every wrong decision it possibly could in the process, and misses the chance to really say something about the current state of entertainment. It’s easily one of the worst pieces of media I’ve seen in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and a colossal misfire on so many levels.
