This movie had potential but failed miserably in execution, mainly for poor writing. This movie seems to be intended as a modern imitation of a couple movies from the 70s, namely Prime Time which was good and The Groove Tube which wasn't, however this film is much worse.
The filmmaker seems to have borrowed the format of the two films mentioned and updated the idea from TV to Apps (not very creative) and their use of "shock and offense" humor. The problem was only one segment was in any way humorous while the rest was simply painful to watch.
I gave this a 2 out of 10 simply for the one segment which couldn't save this lemon of a movie but moved it up from a 1 out of 10 (awful).
