Good actors, disappointing film
10 February 2019 | by JGReviewsSee all my reviews

I really like the actors in this film and wanted to like this film, but ultimately I was a little disappointed. There were few laughs in the film and most of them were in the 2 minutes that Bobby Moynihan was on screen. It's probably worth checking out some of the actors/filmmakers' other works instead of this one.
