Absolute junk
8 May 2018 | by jmay66See all my reviews

Despite a good cast and decent cinematography, this film is a complete fail. The script is horrendous; it drags along and goes nowhere. I think it is supposed to be comedic, but there is not a single laugh in the entire movie.

There was no reason for Hollywood to waste money on this script...it should be a career-killer for the writer(s). I can't believe this project looked good on paper and can't imagine why this project was green lighted.

The positive reviews must be for people involved in the film, because I can't imagine anyone actually enjoying this film. Troma would have passed on this script.
