    The 20 Best Reactions To "The Adam Project"

    Deadpool teams up with Gamorra and Bruce Banner for time travel.

    The Adam Project, Netflix’s latest film, is a science fiction action comedy. Ryan Reynolds plays Adam Reed, a renegade pilot from 2050, who tries to travel to 2018 but ends up in Rainier, Washington in year 2022 and allies with his younger self (a bracingly funny Walker Scobell) to stop the invention of time travel.

    The movie is directed by Shawn Levy, who directed Reynolds previously in 2021 hit Free Guy.

    Let's check out what the viewers are saying:

    1. To start, this high praise from one comedy star for another:

    Were tears shed while watching #TheAdamProject this weekend? “That’s classified… but yes.” Congratulations and thank you @VancityReynolds you went back in time… and brought back my childhood.

    2. And more common viewers are admiring it as well:

    3. It seems many people had a difficult time keeping their eyes dry while watching this "comedy" movie.

    Family and I just finished watching #TheAdamProject and it is truly incredible. Feels like the kinds of movies I grew up with. Also not going to lie, may have bawled my eyes out. Congrats @ShawnLevyDirect @VancityReynolds @MarkRuffalo #JenniferGarner & all involved. Wow.

    4. Some viewers were reminded of their childhood days by the movie that borrows many plot elements from Back To The Future.

    6. Many viewers felt their palpable chemistry even though they shared the screen for like 2 minutes only:

    jennifer garner and mark ruffalo had only one 2 minute scene in #TheAdamProject and yet they still managed to make my #13goingon30 heart SOAR WITH JOY, the chemistry and magic between them is just as beautiful as it was 18 years ago 🥺🥺🥺😍😍😍😭😭😭

    7. It was epic, unexpected, and fortuitous.

    Zoe Saldana's entrance in the movie is epic! Wife goals! #TheAdamProject

    8. You better wish Chris Pratt doesn't read this tweet:

    Seeing Ryan Reynolds’ and Zoe Saldana’s chemistry in #TheAdamProject, it only reinstates that he should’ve been Starlord. There, I said it.

    9. Jennifer Garner played the role of a grieving single mother quite touchingly:

    10. This scene brought tears to many eyes.

    11. Catherine Keener's younger self did feel a bit weird to look at:

    Can't get over how badly they botched the deaging of Catherine Keener's character in The Adam Project, she looks like a Sim 😂 #TheAdamProject

    12. And as such, Catherine Keener's de-aging has generated more chatter than her performance.
