Trivia

At one point in the movie, Zach's character is asked to put on his pants twice. A direct nod to The Hangover in which Phil claims it is weird to have to ask him twice to put on pants. See more »

This is a movie and it isn't the worst
11 July 2017 | by dissident320See all my reviews

Netflix might be causing me to watch some questionable movies. Seeing the cast of this I figured it would be reasonably funny. I was mostly correct. It has a few quite funny scenes and doesn't become an utter farce.

The 4 leads Zach Galifianakis, Isla Fisher, Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot are well-cast and have pretty good chemistry together. I think I most surprised on how restrained Zach's performance is. It was almost as if the director reigned him but despite that he still has a few funny moments.

There's much worse comedies out there which is about how high my praise is going to get for this movie. If you're wondering if it's awful, it's not. If you're wondering if it's great, it's not. A fairly dumb plot with good acting and thin character motivations. I don't regret watching it but I won't be revisiting.
