A wasted stellar cast
24 November 2017 | by bettycjungSee all my reviews

11/24/17. A somewhat stellar cast is caught up in the quagmire of the totally vacuous lives of the extremely rich and empty-headed. Watching paint dry is more exciting than the way these people avoid the necessary discussion at hand. Lasted only 29 minutes, and that was 28 minutes too long.
