'Kill Me If You Dare' Netflix Review: Good or Bad?

Kill Me If You Dare Zabij mnie, kochanie Natalia Weronika Ksiazkiewicz Piotr Mateusz Banasiuk

As I live and breathe, I cannot believe or understand why “Kill Me If You Dare” (“Zabij Mnie, Kochanie”) currently has a (below average) 4.6 rating out of 10 on IMDb. It is an entertaining dark comedy about a couple who wins a lottery, only to have their marriage tested. 

It is no secret that money makes people do “crazy” things. For Natalia and Piotr, this includes having their respective best friends try to turn them against each other. For all of the comedy that “Kill Me If You Dare” utilizes, it strikes at those who go after the crumbs.

Why Natalia and Piotr are friends with these people is anyone’s guess. They are obvious moochers, grifters, whatever you call “hangers-on.” Nevertheless, Natalia’s friend Agata (Agnieszka Wiedlocha) and Piotr’s friend Lukasz (Piotr Rogucki) exploit their married friends’ suspicions.

Will Natalia (Weronika Ksiazkiewicz) and Piotr (Mateusz Banasiuk) figure out their friends’ con before it is too late? You have to watch and find out. Some funny moments are sprinkled through “Kill Me If You Dare.” This Netflix subscriber was not expecting a laugh riot that left those watching breathless. 

The Polish remake of Turkey’s 2019 original seems designed to be farcical. It does its job of lifting viewers’ moods while giving them vibrant colors to feast their eyes on. Where is the harm in that? “Kill Me If You Dare” may not knock you dead, but I felt alive watching it.

“Kill Me If You Dare” is now streaming on Netflix.
