Yawn. A WHOLE hour in.
20 April 2016 | by (Arizona) – See all my reviews

So dry. No humor whatsoever. Boring as heck. Sat through a full hour waiting for the story to pick up. Weak story line and even weaker comedy by the actors. So lame. So so so so so so lame. . MM is much better than this. Baffled as to how production companies picked this crap up. She can do so much better. . I don't understand why director would pan out after a lame joke to a shot of the city, and zoom in, this happened like 10 times. Why are these 'filler scenes' necessary, might it be because oh, there's no HUMOR? I was sorely disappointed to say the very least; even Kristen Bell disappointed me with her weak lines.
