Film Review - Irresistible


At some point during the end of his run as the host of “The Daily Show,” Jon Stewart decided he wanted to become a film director. In 2014, he delivered “Rosewater,” which wasn’t the comedy people were expecting from him, presenting a stark look at an Iranian prison story. It was a creative leap that didn’t attract an audience, but it cleared something out of Stewart’s system, establishing an interest in dodging expectations. Five years later, Stewart is back with “Irresistible,” which is exactly the kind of movie fans want from him.
