WTF??? Really???
24 December 2017 | by jmix66See all my reviews

Oddly a sizable number of decent actors somehow got roped into (read: paid) to star in middling quality (read: terrible) film. It's sort fo a comedy, but one where they forget to tell jokes and where the humor is slightly less sophisticated than a Scooby-Doo cartoon ( the ones with Scrappy Doo, that is)

The films starts off with protagonist motivated by the hoariest of "life changing event" tropes and gets sillier from there. Basically, you watch the film for slightly longer than 90 minutes and the film's ending is telegraphed about 10-15 minutes. If you can't figure out what's going to happen, then you haven't seen a Hollywood film. EVER.

Not sure where the good reviews on here come from because this film is six different types of terrible. It could be more...but it is saved (just barely) by the presence of several very good actors. And npo...Judy Geer isn't one of them.
