The website’s consensus sums it up perfectly: “Bringing Lulu Wilson back for another round of whooping on bad guys, this Wrath is one Becky with the good sequel.” However, Metacritic’s score of 51 out of 100 suggests a more mixed reaction, indicating that opinions may differ.

What truly sets “The Wrath of Becky” apart is its seamless blend of heart-pounding action and laugh-out-loud comedy. Lulu Wilson’s portrayal of Becky is a masterclass in comic timing, delivering punchlines with the same precision as her punches. And let’s not forget the comedic genius of Seann William Scott, whose witty banter and physical comedy bring an extra layer of hilarity to the mix.


But it’s not all about the laughs. The film also explores deeper themes of friendship, loyalty, and the courage to stand up for what’s right. Becky’s character development is nuanced and touching, reminding us that even in the face of danger, a small but determined hero can make a world of difference.

The chemistry between the cast members is undeniable. Lulu Wilson and Seann William Scott’s on-screen dynamic is electric, creating a duo that is equal parts endearing and riotously funny. Their banter and teamwork bring a refreshing and delightful energy to the film, making it a joy to watch.
