I wanted to like this more and although Ritu Arya and Priya Kansara are stand-outs in their roles, the film itself bounces around from slap-stick comedy action to more serious family drama to over-the-top Disney-level evil - enough to give one wihiplash. If the film could have settled on a tone, I think it would have worked out much better but as it stands, it's much too random to make it more than a quaint curiosity.

I really wanted to like this one, because it looked and sounded like such a fun idea. But "Polite Society" is like if Disney Channel tried to produce its own "Cornetto Trilogy".

I Have the Urge to Be Extremely Impolite

At a loss with this one. Its fight scenes operate on Musical logic, being diegetic but barely even ancillary. They are outrageous externalisations of grounded conflicts usually expressed through dialogue. An interesting conceit to give genre spark to a family drama story.

That's not what this film is, though. I mean yes, it DOES have elements of drama and every conflict in this film revolves around family and legacy, but it also has a villainous plot from the realms of science fiction and teenagers coordinating Mission: Impossible heists from an attic. This isn't some West Asian John Hughes movie, this is Agent Cody Banks with an f-bomb. What's so shameful about doing mixed-martial arts scenes you need to dress it up with these weird meta abstractions?
