1483654937113I adore Drew Barrymore, she is one of my favourite American actresses, I loved her in E.T. and adored her in Riding in Cars with Boysย and Never being Kissed, so I was thrilled to see her in a brand new Comedy Series on Netflix.

I started watching it and I was so disgusted that I had to turn it off after even finishing the first episode.

I didnโ€™t get it, I didnโ€™t get it at all.

Drew Barrymore is Sheila, a normal mum of a 16 years old teen and married to Joel, both real estate agents that one day, totally out of the blue and without explanation, startsย throwing up so much during a meeting with clients that it was actually very uncomfortable to watchโ€ฆ.and turns out to be dead-undead after few hours.

She starts behaving weirdly following every single desire she has, constantly hungry, careless and totally out of controlโ€ฆ.the first 30 minutes were actually bad but bearable, things got a lot worse when talking to a colleague, she just ate half of his hands, smiling and keeping the conversation going like it was totally normal.

Santa Clarita Diet is supposed to be a horror-comic series which it has turned out to be a mess mixing the worse horror movies stereotypes and a funny comedy, finishing up with very bad acting, lots of silence, lack of decent dialogues and non-sense timing between scenes.

And so I ask myself, or better I would like to ask Drew Barrymore: Why?!?!
