Who EVER thought MARTIN should play this role...
23 July 2019 | by professional-50300See all my reviews

Who EVER thought MARTIN should play this role was OUT OF IT! Martin isn't a bad actor but he IS NOT EYE CANDY AT ALL! The movie lacked for me because of it! I can't see Martin as a player AT ALL. He got a 16yr old body with a 28 yr old face. Who casted him?! The chicken king would've been a better choice than him geez! The movie lost major points for that!
