Just terrible
10 December 2017 | by talismanthirteenSee all my reviews

Tedious, tone deaf, and not the comedy the trailer wants you to believe it is. Can't decide if it is a comedy or a drama, and it's not enough of either to be a dramedy. Cast had a ton of promise and it was all squandered due to a thoughtless screenplay and uninspired directing. One of the worst movies I've seen in a long time. And can Hollywood do away with the "Got in a car accident, here is an airbag hilariously exploding in a guys face 10 seconds after the crash" cliché? It wasn't funny 20 years ago and it's not funny now.
