          Jimmy has this fake aura around him. I wish Alfonso asked him anything about the movie or made something up just to see if Fallon really saw the movie

                                              That scene of the yoga pose was amazing... She did it, she had to be prepared for how life was going to hit her amd its true: sometimes our biggest strength stories go unnoticed precisely because we keep them inside, not allowing ourselves to be broken down

                                                  Jimmy is not a good interviewer or host. He’s just not genuine. But when it comes to creative skits and musical comedy he is phenomenal.

                                                          That's right fake and weird perception but also the movie was not that great honestly.

                                                                                  The way the soldier shouts 'Ceasefire' and when the younger soldiers bow down and pray for seeing a baby for the first time in their life was probably the greatest moment in modern day cinema.
                                                                                  This man deserves all the praise he can get 🙌🙏🙌
