Social commentary is easy to do, but difficult to do well. Unfortunately, Treehouse doesn’t try very hard. The acting, led by Jimmi Simpson (Westworld, Always Sunny) and Julianna Guill (Friday the 13th [2009]), felt genuine despite hit-or-miss dialogue. Placing focus on getting PSA-like talking points and one-liners across rather than organically introducing important plot points, this felt like a commercialization of the Me Too movement. It is simply bad storytelling. While it is refreshing to have a St. Patrick’s Day-themed film not revolve solely around alcohol (although it was merely represented by Celtic knot tattoos), there needed to be more substance.

Maggie is a freelance writer and musician who enjoys Friday the 13th, cooking shows (but not cooking), and early 2000s pop punk. She cheers for the Milwaukee Bucks, Green Bay Packers, and campy slasher kills. Her beautiful senior rescue dog, Josie, keeps her sane.
