Great actors in a real insipid turd of a film
3 April 2016 | by thekarmicnomadSee all my reviews

A university graduate has to find a job to pay the rent and get his girlfriend of his back.

The premise is simple enough and all the characters are set up to make this an entertaining movie. The film boasts an excellent line up. All lights are green.

I cannot give this movie a full review as I could not bare to sit through the whole thing. It is just not funny. I cannot even tell you why? But it is like watching a stand-up comedian die on stage, for over an hour.

All the ingredients for a comedy are here, they just don't work. The scenes with the stoners are boring and flat, their hapless attempts at getting a career are just stupid - yet not funny. The stripper scene, even with perky boobs on display, is tedious and dull.

Alison Bree's character is bland and caustic, and only there so we can hear awkward, sexual references come from the mouth of a pretty woman - what a waste.

I have never seen a film with so much talent be so painfully bland. As we watched - in stony silence - I actually started to feel embarrassed for the actors and just had to switch off. I have not had to do this for some time.
