Greer Grammer played the leading role in a movie that is now topping the Netflix charts, despite mixed reports from viewers after the raunchy sex scenes and “confusing” ending.
The 29-year-old actress — the daughter of actor Kelsey Grammer and Barrie Bucker — has been appearing on TV screens since 2010, but seems to have had an enormous breakthrough in the last week after Netflix released the psychological thriller Deadly Illusions.
Greer Grammer celebrated Deadly Illusions‘ mega-success with a major photo dump that included a stunning bikini photo.
Kelsey Grammer’s daughter posted several pictures from the hit movie, including the iconic orange bathing suit she wore for the swimming pool scene.
She also penned a sweet message to thank the viewers who loved the movie.
She wrote: “deadly illusions’ photo dump 📖 🎀 🚲👙🥑🔪
Welp! The movie dropped on Netflix yesterday, and all I can say is 🙈😬😈 Thanks to everyone who has watched and gotten us into the top 10! Reading all the messages about our crazy ride of a film has been so exciting and fun. This role is definitely different than any other role I’ve done in the past (friends & family, you have been WARNEDDD 🙈) BUT happy/anxious/excited that it’s finally out in the world for everyone to watch! Xx”
Until now, she was best known for playing Lissa Miller in the comedy TV show Awkward between 2011 and 2016.
The actress, who was named after legendary actress Greer Garson, plays nanny Grace, who is hired by author Mary and her husband, Tom — played by Kristin Davis and Dermot Mulroney, respectively.
And while Greer Grammer’s latest feature has topped the Netflix charts, with many users recommending it to their friends, it is perhaps not with the sort of high praise most actors would hope for.
Released on March 18, the movie with its “unnecessary” sex scenes and “confusing” ending has hardly earned outstanding reviews from subscribers but nonetheless has rocketed to the top of the most-watched lists and become the current most popular movie on Netflix.
Some viewers have taken to social media to suggest this is a result of the film being the “best awful movie ever.”
Others branded the movie a “waste of time,” with some going as far as saying it was the worst thing Netflix has ever released — even threatening to cancel their monthly subscriptions to the streaming app.
One social media user questioned how anybody thought it was a good idea to spend money on making Deadly Illusions, and others said they watched the whole 2-hour movie but still had “no idea” what happened at the end.
