After witnessing what can only be described as a 'car crash' of a movie, I was surprised to find so many glowing reviews?! However, clicking onto the majority of these profiles reveals they are new members whose accounts were coincidentally created around the time of the films release, or appear to be used to push specific movie titles with a political agenda. Why? This is a Movie Database not a platform for terrible politics.

One of them even goes so far as to mention her son by name (and highlights this) in every review, regardless of whether or not he saw the film.

Anyway, The movie is terrible, technically it is average looking and it would be hard to fault the quality of the medium, given that most people have HD built into their smartphone now.

Each scene was as desperate as it was cringe-worthy, using every common, overplayed cliché and trope from last year. People getting covered in urine is not comedy, And I think it's fair to say the ignorantly confident and 'sassy' girl power thing has been done to death. The story failed to convey any moral or real emotional weight. Uncomfortably, the cast was almost entirely and purposely 'Blackwashed' with the exception of some 90's Spike Lee style reverse tokens if you look hard enough. Just why? Shameful.
