After months of buzz and chatter, Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling is officially out—collecting more than $19 million at the box office and a priceless amount of internet real estate. Since the film’s initial release at the Venice Film Festival in early September, the conversation around the controversial project has been a never-ending loop of rumors, accusations, and implications. Now, with the film officially in our hands, Twitter remains absolutely buzzing.
The release of Don’t Worry Darling is bittersweet, closing the book on the wildest promotional roller coaster we’ve seen in years, which, depending on where you fall in the “lawful evil” to “chaotic evil” alignment system, is either a sweet release or a crushing disappointment. We’ve spent the last few months mulling over who fired whom, who screamed at whom, and who directed what. For those entrenched in the discourse around this film, it’ll be no surprise to see the reactions to it are far from cut and dry. We couldn’t come out of the PR pressure cooker of the movie’s pre-release just to unanimously agree on the quality of the movie itself, right?
Here are the best Twitter reactions to the film, the on-set drama, and that one dancing scene (IYKYK). If you haven’t seen the film, beware. Spoilers ahead!
