Terrible Plot, Acting, everything. Only good thing was hearing Tim Allen say F***
9 December 2017 | by adriangolosky-13714See all my reviews

I don't usually write reviews but this movie sucked . I watched it because Netflix has a decent track record, the plot seemed decent and I like the cast. I haven't seen Tim Allen in a movie since I was a kid, now I know why.

The acting from everyone is terrible. No one adds anything to the movie. The script was terrible. Boring, pointless and often didn't even make sense.

Everything about this movie is painfully bad. Within 10 minutes the whole thing falls apart. Even when it tried to be funny it was terrible. Tim Allen singing was painful even though he was drunk and it was supposed to be bad, it was just bad acting. Nothing about this plot made sense.

This movie just was bad.

Honestly the only good thing about this movie was hearing Tim Allen say "Fuck". I know him from Home Improvement, Toy Story, Santa Claus... so never really heard that before.

Watch it for yourself if you want and make your own opinion. But I wouldn't plan a movie night around this or anything because you will feel like you wasted an hour and a half.
