House of Gucci had a lot of stuff going for it. First and foremost, it promised us more Lady Gaga on the big screen. A Star is Born proved that Gaga was more than just a great singer; she can carry a Hollywood movie and even shine above the veterans she shares the screen with. Such is the case in House of Gucci, just not in quite as good a way.
We didn’t think House of Gucci was very good. Parts of it were even bad. Gaga herself was fine, even the kinda boring performance of Adam Driver was alright, but WTF was Jared Leto doing?! On top of that, the movie as a whole just felt like it drifted from plot point to plot point without much purpose. We’re both kinda baffled how the caliber of talent involved in this at every level allowed this to happen.
