A logically flawed but still brilliant movie

Willis 2022-09-21 04:08:38

Surrogacy is a very dramatic subject. Except for a few obvious logical loopholes, the whole film is generally well shot and has suspense. The three major logical loopholes are: first, if you know that this female lunatic will kill, why not call the police and go to the lake house to catch her, but to catch her yourself? Second, there is only one egg. When picking a surrogate mother, the lawyer didn't do a serious background check? Third, why did the female lunatic go to the male protagonist's company to harass him? There is no reason.
