more Cho
15 July 2020 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Adam Murphy (Paulo Costanzo) is a hot shot unscrupulous property developer and an unabashed bachelor. He works for Roger Whitacre (John Cho) and lives next to obsessed neighbor Frank Purdy (Tyler Labine). When his pee starts to burn, he is diagnosed with gonorrhea. So he informs his many past conquests. His next project is tearing down a community center run by Liv Ericksson (Ingrid Haas).

I really like a lot of these comedic actors. I just wish for more John Cho. Adam getting fired is the first misstep since it's followed by a section devoid of Cho. This movie needs more Cho, not less. Adam should decide to save the community center and quit his job. The movie feels scattered. Adam could go into a 12 step program which demands that he makes amends or his amends should have a more solid foundation. Like his condo, this movie has a flawed foundation. It's saved by some fun wacky characters and fun actors.
