No, lord.I'm hoping everyone was able to leave without incurring enormous debt but I suspect that's not what happens at the end.I'm getting way too stressed for the few people of color on screen.This is a horror story, yo. Like watching Get Out with bad patterns.And yeah, like that lady said, no way I would have gotten on a cruise with all those pale, bleached Stepford Wives.It actually reminded me of that cult where they branded women, NXIVM, with all its shitty faux feminism.
