Did You Know?


Damon Wayans Jr. plays Darlie Bunkle, and his first scene with Jamie Dornan sees him wearing a face mask which, while funny at the time, plays differently for the trio watching it during a pandemic. "Hopefully when you're watching this in a decade it's not normal anymore." See more »

Crazy Credits

During the credits the entire screen is bordered by drawings of birds and flowers. At the start of the credits on the left half of the screen are videos of the various characters, not really outtakes but similar, while the credits roll on the right. Once the videos end, the credits spring to the center of the screen. Throughout all of this there is movement by different parts of the border images -- birds flap their wings, flowers shake and so forth. See more »

Not bad at all
15 February 2021 | by pizandengSee all my reviews

I was not impressed by the trailer at all but my sister somehow wanted to watch it last night, so we rented it. And I'm glad to say it was a blast, everyone in my family had fun. It has some flaws, some of the jokes didn't land and the craziness was sometimes over the top but overall, a very enjoyable goofy, silly, old-school comedy. I have new respect for Kristen Wiig. Thank you for a nice Sunday night.
