90 Minutes You Will Never Get Back
25 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie does not even live up to it's synopsis. I agree with the review in the Village Voice which says: "There's only one joke here — GOP voters are bigoted, Stars and Stripes–wearing clowns — and it's handled with the sort of blunt, bludgeoning mean-spiritedness that it slams them for peddling. Equating volume with humor, England and Markham stage their material with maximum amounts of hysterical screaming, all of it leading to climactic health-care-centric irony that's so simplistic even Michael Moore would have been too embarrassed to include it." When a movie does not even come up to the entertainment level of it's simple synopsis, you have wasted 90 minutes of your valuable time.
