My review:

I gave it 4/5 stars in my mini Twitter review when I saw it on May 8th, and I stand by that—it was definitely a "popcorn movie" (aka kinda of "fluffy" / one I didn't think about much the next day) but it was a lot of fun. 

The double entendre of the title also made me chuckle a bit; Gosling plays a stunt guy, hence he's a "fall guy," and the second meaning will be revealed later on in the movie, so I won't reveal it here.

Gosling and Blunt also had great chemistry together, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson is great as the guy who Gosling's character is a stunt double for. Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso) was also good in this, as was an almost unrecognizable Teresa Palmer, and also Stephanie Hsu.
