Even Worse Than I Expected
15 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A 30-something couple (Jason Mewes and Samantha Lockwood) unintentionally become involved in a botched jewel heist while shopping for wedding rings...

I do not want to spend too much time trying to critique this movie. Despite having some decent actors in here and a somewhat interesting, somewhat humorous, story... all I can say is, what the heck? This was sort of like a hot mess. Your best characters are the Smith Brothers, whereas your worst character is Nate (Mewes). And, of course, they make Nate the main character.

I love Jason Mewes, and I love to see him in a role outside of the stoner sidekick box. But something was wrong here. Either he cannot act (possible, but not necessarily true) or nobody gave a hoot while making this film and did not even try for passing-grade performances (more likely true). Not fun, not good.
