being analog, film does have greater resolution when exposure correctly.

I suppose ppl will enjoy the process of taking photos with film, and developing them in  a dark room. The efficiency of digital photography is what made it mainstream.

so that leaves only only one reason ppl would use film now days, to have fun.

Being analog, means film resolution can not be measured.

A print can be measured, but the resolution depends on the printer.

A scan can be measured, but the resolution depends on the scanner.

If you mean film produces sharper images with more detail, that depends on the film, the lens, the photographer, the lighting, the exposure, and the person doing the comparison.

It also depends on the digital camera it is being compared to, as well as the other variables that go into making a sharp photo.

This topic will be debated until film is no longer with us, but many people believe that the top-end 35mm film had an equivalent resolving power of 20MP.
