The First Reactions To “House Of Gucci” Are All Over The Place

November 10, 2021 / Posted by:

Method actress Lady Gaga‘s next Oscar vehicle, House of Gucci, comes out on November 24 and recently had its UK premiere. A lot of critic-types have already seen it and Variety says that the social media embargo recently lifted on the film, meaning they were free to talk shit about it on Twitter–which people did. And much like the hammed-up accents in the movie, it seems that reactions to the film are all over the place.

House of Gucci from director Ridley Scott, is the story of Patrizia Reggiani (played by Gaga) who was married to Maurizio Gucci (played by Adam Driver) and was tried and convicted for planning his 1995 murder. The film also stars Jared Leto, Jeremy Irons, Salma Hayek, and Al Pacino. The trailers had me thinking this was going to be a campy mess and depending on who you talk to, I was right.

Full reviews arrive on November 22 but so far these comments are diametrically opposed to each other at points. One person said it gave him Godfather vibes. Here go hell come for him because the movie-buff crowd is gonna eat him up for that comparison. Another called it “an overwrought slog without any discernible direction.” Others praised Gaga and Adam’s chemistry, and Al Pacino got called the “MVP.” But Jared Leto’s performance seemed to be the most controversial of the bunch. Someone called him “cartoonish” while another person said it was his “best since his Oscar win.” The fuck? Pick a lane. But hey, regardless of what you think of his performance, you will get to see Jared piss on a Gucci scarf while dressed in fancy The Penguin drag, so… if that’s something you’re into. Here are some of the reactions:

Let’s see how the Gucci family reacts to this film. They have already said that they were worried about how Ridley Scott is going to treat their family’s legacy. Well, when they see Jared pissing on one of their scarves, they’re gonna release a video of one of them pissing on a copy of Suicide Squad in return, which is redundant since Suicide Squad is already a puddle of lukewarm piss.
