I was excited to see it, but it went on and on and became more ridiculous. It started off clever and went downhill after the first 30 minutes. I'm sure it's supposed to be artsy and give a profound message. The only message I got was sometimes it's better to stay home and watch Netflix.

The Synopsis for Sorry to Bother You (2018) 1080p
In an alternate version of Oakland, Cassius Green gets a telemarketing job and finds the commission paid job a dispiriting struggle as a black man selling to predominately white people over the phone. That changes when a veteran advises him to use his "white voice," and the attitude behind it to make himself more appealing to customers. With a bizarrely high-pitched accent, Cassius becomes a success even as his colleagues form a union to improve their miserable jobs. Regardless, Cassius finds himself promoted a "Power Caller" selling the most morally abhorrent but lucrative products and services as his connection to his girlfriend and colleagues fades away. However, Cassius' conscience arises anew as he finds himself in the midst of his boss' bizarre world of condescending bigoted decadence and his sinister plans to create the perfect subservient work force with Cassius' help.

Wow, there are a lot of people who don't like this movie, and moreover, seem to mad that others like it. Some samples:
"I think people who are giving it high praise believe that's just what their supposed to do but the fact is it's just a dumpster fire of a movie."
" I RARELY write movie reviews but had to inform people of the facts on this one."
"The positive reviews are from movie snobs who think they are smarter than everyone else and recognize brilliance in pure garbage."
You get the point. It's almost like we're all supposed to like all the same things now. (In fairness, there were plenty of other reviewers who didn't like it, but said they're glad others enjoyed it.
I'm not a movie snob. I'm not a film executive and I have nothing to do with the film except I paid 6 bucks to see it last Tuesday. This is a very surreal satire. It won't be to everyone's liking, but it seems to me that we are getting more and more confused about the difference between fact and opinion. It's not a fact that this movie sucks, any more than it's a fact that this movie is great. These are classically opinions.
Me, I like movies that start sort of pseudo-normal and go into bizarre. This is right up my alley. It's a Repo Man for our generation. Genetic engineering, dead end call center jobs, megalomaniacal Bay Area billionaires trying to save the world, race relations and post-postmodern art commentary. It's all painted in a crazy, bigger-than-life science fiction brush. Yeah, it's weird as hell, and maybe ends a little weakly (Monty Python and the Holy Grail, anyone?) but has a method in its madness.
If you don't like absurdist humor, or if you don't like movies that are at least semi-overt political statements (especially if the political statement is opposed to yours. Anti-union, pro-business capitalists with short fuses be warned! You should give it a miss and just read the National Review's Ross Douthat's review. He saved you a lot of time worrying your beautiful mind about it.), and if you don't like a dollop of science fiction every now and then, yeah, you're going to probably hate it.
But your opinion is still not fact. I liked it. That's my OPINION. Get over it.
Not going to talk about the plot, because the trailer gives enough away, and the less you know about the movie going in the better. Needless to say, you never know where the movie's going, and it has it's fair share of surprises.
I think Sorry to Bother you is the best satire of this generation, and could go down in history as a defining film of an era, maybe like Apocalypse Now. It does get wilder than you will be expecting, and it may be tempting to reject the movie for being over-the-top, but it is worth going along with the wildness.
