Storyline

Goofs

Early in the film, an elderly woman looks disapprovingly at the main character ordering a decaf coffee (after telling her that caffeine is bad for the fetus). In fact, caffeine is bad primarily because it raises blood pressure without providing any nutrients to the fetus. This is not the case with decaf coffee. The blood pressure change associated with decaf coffee is not statistically significant and puts the baby at no risk of harm. Theoretically, if a pregnant mother drank dozens of cups of decaf coffee it *might* increase her blood pressure but it is very unlikely (not to mention very difficult to actually achieve that level of consumption).

Marlo: Wow. My boss once gave me the flu.

8 May 2018 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

I highly recommend trying out the tactic of not knowing anything going into a film and seeing everything play out on screen freshly. I did just that with Tully, and it was quite the refreshing experience. Directed by Jason Reitman and starring Charlize Theron, Tully is a uniquely genuine film about the tremendous amount of hardships a mother goes through on a day to day basis, all while making it look easy for the rest of us. It will be a controversial one for sure, because of a few specific directions the film takes (bold ones I may add), but ultimately it succeeds in the hands of Reitman and Theron, who truly add a high level of honesty to a project that needs an audience to feel the humanity in Theron's Marlo. In short, Tully may be one of those great summer films that ends up getting forgot about come Oscar time, a la The Big Sick.

8.2/10
