Straight garbage
7 September 2014 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Gavin McInnes seems to have the same problem as Robert DeNiro. By wanting to be a businessman, betting on as many horses as possible, his audience can't remember when was the last time he came up with good material. Whilst playing with the subject of 'older guy trying to make a point', the viewer is submitted to a wafer-thin script & very poor execution. The deadpan reactions of the main character simply aren't funny enough and so called embarrassing situations are too scripted and badly acted to get a reaction. Maybe some millennials and neo-con former-hipsters will appreciate the obvious irony, but I would steer everyone away from this dud.
