Quotes

[first lines]
Lydia Berman: [narrating] In March of 1983, a massive pulse of interstellar cosmic-rays struck the earth and its population. These cosmic rays triggered a genetic transformation in a select few, unleashing unimaginable superpowers. Unfortunately, these superpowers were only unlocked in rare individuals, who were genetically predisposed to be sociopaths. These new super humans came to be known as... Miscreants.

Ben Falcone needs to stop making movies
9 April 2021 | by MovieMuttSee all my reviews

This was like a blah Disney movie but with curse words and sexual innuendos so I'm confused as to who the target audience is. Melissa McCarthy's (whom I love) husband wrote and directed the movie and once again he just doesn't have what it takes. All of his films have been stinkers. I also love Octavia Spencer but she isn't a comedic actress so her performance fell very flat for me. Overall, I'd say skip it. It was boring and brought nothing at all original to the table.
