Viewers of the Netflix film senior year have berated the comedy after discovering a significant plot hole in its story.
The film stars Rebel Wilson as a high school cheerleader who falls into a coma before prom, only to wake up 20 years later and return to her school with unfinished business.
senior year was ravaged by critics and viewers on social media, earning a critics’ rating of just 26 percent on review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes.
Many people on social media described the film as “terrifying” — although others have defended it, insisting it works as a charming throwback to a bygone era of high school comedy.
However, many viewers have the same question about one aspect of the film.
Wilson’s character went into a coma after a cheerleading accident. However, the accident was actually a deliberate act of sabotage by two jealous colleagues.
“The worst part senior year movie on Netflix is no one got in trouble for attempted murder,” one person wrote.
“I was wondering if I’m the only one who thinks this is crazy! I think she was literally trying to harm this girl and that’s never mentioned again in the movie? commented another amazed viewer.
“I thought by the end of #SeniorYear Tiffany would admit she tried to murder Stephanie and maybe serve a little jail time. But I think a big cheer scene made more sense,” a third person wrote.
“Other than ignoring an attempted murder, this graduation film wasn’t bad on Netflix,” wrote another viewer, while another wrote, “So I’m confused… wasn’t that attempted murder????”
In a recent interview, Wilson shared her own #MeToo story and recalled the moment a male co-star tried to “destroy” her and her career.
senior year is now available to stream on Netflix.
