I love Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. It’s a great show. It’s just packed with jokes and great performances. Some of it is a bit dark, but even the dark parts are buoyed by sharp jokes. There’s also more emotional moments to it than Tina Fey and Robert Carlock’s previous show 30 Rock, which is also a great, and probably even better, show. The idea of a Kimmy Schmidt movie should have made me excited. Alas, they decided to make it gimmicky and make it a choose-your-own-adventure movie. Despite that, I decided to watched the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt interactive film. Everything that was Kimmy Schmidt was great, and everything that was interactive gimmickry was not fun.
You can watch the movie and not make any choices and it will just go with whatever option is highlighted, or so I assume. Maybe if you don’t make a choice it has something preprogrammed into it. I don’t know, because I decided to give in and play along. I made choices every time I was asked to. Largely, I went with whatever seemed funnier. I wanted to see a funny movie. This didn’t always work out. A couple times the movie rebooted itself after I had gone too far in the “wrong” direction. This, honestly, was fine. The problem is that the ending of the movie is evidently based on your choices.
