    This entire time I thought this movie was just a well put-together film with a mediocre ending... but it all makes sense now, and I think I have a migraine

                        Yeah... Replaced by a perfect copy, in a world where copies don't exist... So... Totally plausible and in fact the only possible outcome. Imagine if Adelaide's mom started accusing her daughter of being a soul-less clone. Her mother would be deemed insane and removed from her life immediately.

                                  The movie is set in the U.S, then the movie is called Us.
                                  So if it was set in Canada, then the movie is called Can.

                                        The American dream is about being free and it how is all of these pacific to America. It seems to me that it would fit more with greed 🤦‍♂️

                                            Im studying the book 'of mice and men' and the book has A LOT of rabbit imagery and the book has the subtext of the failed american dream. I think that is one of the reasons jordan peele added so much imagery of the rabbits

                                                      the american dream is hell fire; you can't stop asking for more and more and more, consuming none stop buying nonstop and spending none stop only to keep comparing nonstop thinking doing the stupid narcissism you are doing will make you happy and fulfilled, the american dream can't be reached, happiness can't be reached and perfection is impossible. that's why america is its own enemy.
                                                      america is all about the shallow looks, the appearance, and the "LOOK AT ME" mentality, sick, disgusting, and worthless.
                                                      they tell you "money is everything because you use it to buy everything" no one ever thinks about the passion, the soul, the journey, the lessons learned, the efforts spent doing anything at all. everyone is merely rushing after results and paychecks, everyone worshiping the one same made up god, the money. and showing off your worth and value using it as a facade, while your inner-self is made of stress, emotional deprivation, anxiety, insecurity, envy, hatred, agony, and self loathing. everyone wants everyone around them to accept them, but the others won't accept you for who you are because their mentality was programmed to force them to accept others based on what you can gain from them, basically ... basic human interaction became a trade for goods, love became capitalism, careers are capitalism, happiness turned into capitalistic gaining and spending. there is no spirituality anymore no real value in anything! you can call it the nation of the freedom as much as you want, but in truth it's the nation of the capitalistic enslavement where the government programmed the free to be enslaved using capitalism itself as their weapon. you never were free and never will be, you were born as slaves to the dollar, among other slaves, and you will grow up only to give birth to more money slaves.

                                                            If the Tethered lack soul ( meaning move slower ) if should be the other way around

                                                            The Pluto car scene . Pluto is snapping on beat the whole time making a fire - something jason can’t do and has been tryin to do the whole movie

                                                            There was never a magic trick - he didn’t even know what it did - he was simply just too slow to light it

I suspect it because of the trailer that shows that those in red cant talk well or at all. Bud with al the twists and turns in the movie, i couldn't tell any more for sure. hahahaha

They catered to black people when they were being segregated, what, two hundred years ago? And somehow this helps point to the claim of "the american dream is empty". Believe it or not, we don't live in a segregated world today. Every country has dark spots. England, Germany, Japan, Russia, pretty much the ENTIRETY OF AFRICA. Does this mean that Germany is still full of Nazis? Does this mean that Japan still wants to take over the world? No. Then why does it mean that The United States of America is somehow empty?

She’s still the woman who raised him and loved him and took care of him. She is still the woman who gave birth to him. She’s still his mother. She is the woman he loves as his mother, and is truly his mother. Yes, he could be upset she kept the truth from him, but it truly wasn’t the time to be angry at her. He accepted it because he loved her, and I think she may have loved him as well. Sure, they don’t have souls, but a mother’s instincts are to care for her child until they can care for themselves, and mothers love their children. You see it in animals too, so why shouldn’t these people love their children? She’s still his mother, and nothing can really break that bond.

                                                                            LuckyWolf Studios wrong . Both Red and Pluto are both switched .

                                                                            The car scene where Pluto backs into the fire is actually Her real son that’s why she was yelling “ no no no “ when he was backing in .

                                                                            I’ll explain ... So Pluto can light a lighter/Matches .. ( whole point of the snap on beat scene )
                                                                            but Jason can’t ?

                                                                            If the Tethered lack soul ( move slower )
                                                                            Shouldn’t it be the other way around ?

                                                                            The people underground want what the people above ground have ..

                                                                            So Jason learned a magic trick last year but doesn’t even know what it does ? There was never a magic trick he was just too slow to snap to make a fire
                                                                            Which is why on the fire car scene Pluto is snapping to the beat ( doing something jason can’t do )

                                                                            During the red/Adelaide dance battle scene - Red is dancing circles around her cause she’s too slow . Etc

                                                                            Jason doesn’t show any emotions , frustration or anything . He’s not scared during the break in. He doesn’t scream getting picked up. He’s not scared going in the white peoples home

                                                                            The only time you see him frustrated is cause he can’t light the lighter . That’s the real Pluto .

                                                                            Jason doesn’t know where the bat is ? Jason doesn’t remember getting locked in the closet last year ? Jason vocabulary has changed that shocks the family . Jason points at the clock 11:11 with Adelaide . Adelaide and Jason both have scenes where it’s said they don’t talk much. Tons of clues

She’s still his mother, she still gave birth to him, but he knows she’s not a real person and what she did to the woman who should’ve been his mother. Plus, he’s seen what the soulless ones are capable of. Out of survival he isn’t going to say or do something that might make her distrust him and ultimately try to kill him, so he puts on his mask to keep playing the part so that she’s none-the-wiser.
