Like an Adam-Sandler-Movie that wants to be clever
9 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

Deformed dick and prolapsed anus aside (yes, those are the "medical conditions" that make the characters rally for health-care), this movie can only be useful as a bad example for film-school.

An impressive benchmark how a movie filled with a great cast AND led by a good director can turn out REALLY bad. Even the premise is relatively original.

The certainly intentional overacting makes everyone a caricature but unfortunately reaps no laughs at all. None.

The political satire part squibbed because the movie is so far over the top that it can't be taken seriously. Politics serve just as setting not the focus of a persiflage.

If you want to see how director David O. Russel does a better job with about the same budget, watch "I Heart Huckabees", which I enjoyed quite a bit.
