I, Tonya (2017)

Rated: R - Runtime: 120 min
tesg's Rating: Three stars (out of four)

It's almost sad how much fun this movie is to watch. Tonya Harding's complete train wreck of a life is unfolded through the well-known names involved in or around "the incident"...the attack on Nancy Kerrigan ahead of the 1994 Winter Olympics, the buffoonery behind the attack being absolutely mind-boggling. The story is often told through recreations of interviews and a lot of third wall dropping.

Not ONE single character is likable. Not even Nancy Kerrigan. But Allison Janney as Harding's mother is deliciously evil, stealing every scene she's in.
