Rating: PG-13

Release Date: In theatres nationwide on Friday, June 23, 2023

My Take: I am sad that Bill Murray is not in this film. He has been in every Wes Anderson film since Anderson’s directorial debut, Bottle Rocket, back in 1996. Murray got sick right before filming, and Steve Carell took over the role.
