I dont care for the "tonal" differences between this film and the others.
Comedy and jokes arent a problem per se...
(if the comedy is actually funny.. and it is pretty funny in certain spots)
The script takes its lead characters, their inner lives and the situation
they are in seriously enough that there's still a sense of "the stakes".
... just like other Shane Black films, actually.
The main problem here is that the script is convoluted in the extreme
to the point of the "plot" almost seeming like straight nonsense.
(almost like a transformers michael bay movie in that aspect)
Oh and it treats autism like a magic power.
That is gonna give rise to lots of "hot takes"...
