Come Play wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great either. We’ll break this one down into what was right and what was wrong.
Azhy Robertson, playing Oliver did fantastic. I can see him doing well for himself.
The concept of the monster was new. I liked how they used today’s technology to bring it to life. The underlying message of just wanting to be liked and fit in was well stated.
The effects were cool. One scene in particular where they used wind and trash to create the visual of the unseen monster was neat.
Gillian Jacobs as Sarah, Oliver’s mom, was terrible. I’m sorry, but no mother out there would make the decisions she did. She felt forced and entirely unbelievable. My dislike of her performance marred the entire movie for me. I couldn’t get passed her really bad acting.
I’d take or leave this movie. Stream it in the comfort of your own home, it’s worthy of that.
About The Peetimes: Come Play is fairly short so I submitted one Peetime. It comes right before all the major action starts.
There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Come Play. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)

Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Androidor iPhone) when you go to the movies. We have Peetimes for all wide release films every week, including Madam Web, One Love, Argylle, I.S.S., and coming soon DUNE part II and many others. We have literally thousands of Peetimes—from classic movies through today’s blockbusters. You can also keep up with movie news and reviews on our blog, or by following us on Twitter @RunPee. If there’s a new film out there, we’ve got your bladder covered.
RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
