Everyone onboard gives terrific performances, but it's Anne and Jason who really succeed, they're both incredible as the film escalates. I often feel like Hathaway doesn't get enough credit for her performances, so it's nice to see a film take full advantage of her talents, come award season I'll be disappointed if this gets ignored, she's a believable mess here, a role I don't see many women pull off. Sudeikis on the other hand, he starts off likable as the "nice guy", but seeing him become the kind of "nice guy" we often hear about these days is fascinating, you'd think it'd feel off and out of character, but due to a great performance it ends up being natural and solid. This is a character piece, despite the kaiju stuff (which is more cute than awesome) we are given a great story, with great performances at the center of why it all works.
Honestly guys, go watch this film and think about what it has to say, while the women out there, I hope you find this to be entertaining as well as a nice representation of interactions you might have had at some point with some men in your life, I know it's not commonly showcased. Seriously, go watch Colossal, spread the word on it, this movie deserves a bigger audience asap.
