Olivia Wilde's "Don't Worry Darling" is a psychological thriller, but some moments are unintentionally hilarious.
Scenes from "DWD" that probably weren't intended to be funny have elicited laughs from audiences.
This includes the scene in which Jack screams in the car as Alice is taken away.
Warning: Major spoilers ahead for "Don't Worry Darling."
Jack's tap-dancing routine is comically long and pointless.
At a lavish Victory party, Frank (Chris Pine) unexpectedly pulls Jack (Harry Styles) on stage to reveal that he's promoting him at work because of his impressive growth at the mysterious company.
In a very cult-like moment, they begin chanting "Whose world is it? Ours!" The scene is menacing until Jack bursts into dance, with Frank encouraging him.
It appears that this scene is the one that director Olivia Wilde was referencing when she told Rolling Stone that Styles left the crew "in tears" because he "took it to another level" and was "so fully in the moment" while screaming his lines.
Any intensity that Styles delivered in that scene is quickly forgotten because of his distracting tap-dancing number that goes on for far too long as Alice (Florence Pugh) is having a breakdown in the bathroom.
Jack's meltdown in the car after Alice is dragged away is too overacted to be taken seriously.
One of the flaws of the film is that Styles' acting doesn't quite fit the level this movie needed. His skills still need to be developed, especially when he's working opposite Oscar-nominee Florence Pugh and seasoned pros like Chris Pine.
The inexperience is especially prominent when Jack reluctantly agrees to flee Victory with Alice for a better life.
Within seconds of getting in the car, men in red jumpsuits arrive to drag Alice away and "fix" her as Jack repeatedly apologizes for betraying her. Jack is left alone in his car screaming, shaking, and slamming his fists against the steering wheel.
It's an objectively serious scene, but his acting is laughable.
Real-world Jack deciding that his simulation persona should be British makes a lot of sense.
Styles, an accomplished British musician who got his start as a member of the band One Direction, has few acting credits: guest-starring as himself on an episode of Nickelodeon's "iCarly," playing a soldier in Christopher Nolan's "Dunkirk," and appearing as Eros in the end-credits scene of Marvel's "Eternals."
In "Don't Worry Darling," simulation Jack is charming and British. When the movie's plot twist is revealed, audiences learn that in the real world, he's a 29-year-old American who lives in a crappy apartment and listens to Frank's teachings on the computer while Alice, a surgeon, works lengthy shifts in a hospital.
Styles only briefly speaks in an American accent in the movie, during the flashbacks — which felt like an intentional way to disguise the budding actor's weak American accent.
Styles' Florence Pugh-esque frown during his character's argument with Alice has become a meme.
During an argument, Jack yells at Alice, saying: "I gave you all of this, Alice. We are lucky to be here."
Styles' pout while delivering those lines has been compared to Pugh's signature frown, seen in projects like "Black Widow," "Midsommar," "Hawkeye," and "Little Women."
Styles' facial expression during that scene has taken on a life of its own and become a goldmine for memes and reaction tweets.
Bunny hilariously tackles Dean to stop him from chasing Alice.
This was a valiant effort on behalf of Bunny (Wilde) to help her friend. But at the moment, the visual of Bunny attacking her husband (Nick Kroll) felt laugh-worthy.
But you have to give it to Kroll. If anyone got through this movie unscathed, it was him.
Think about it: he got a smooch from Styles, did a scenery-chewing part, and even got to do some action when, at the very end, he gets hit by a car as Dean tries to stop Alice from driving away.
Rock on, Nick Kroll!
The Victory henchmen in red jumpsuits scaling the hill to prevent Alice from reaching the exit portal was amusing.
If you stuck with "DWD" long enough to see the story fall apart during the final 30 minutes, you witnessed what we assume Wilde thought would be the "wow" moment with an aerial shot of the red-uniformed men all climbing up the hill to try to stop Alice from exiting the simulation.
We're sure there is some deep metaphor embedded into this moment, but by this point, things had gone so off the rails that our brains already checked out. All we could think of was Thumb Thumbs from "Spy Kids."
We still can't get over how Jack looks in real life.
Are you still in shock at how they uglied up Harry Styles (or at least tried to) when the movie revealed real-life Jack?
