Literally and figuratively, a farce of a movie.
8 May 2018 | by Barry NormanSee all my reviews

Where to begin. The opening credits were lifted from Catch Me if You Can and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. It fails to capture the essence of either. Within the first 10 minutes of the movie, half of which are title sequence, you become quickly aware that the editing was created by Stevie Wonder's stand in, Blind Freddie. Blind Freddie is actually only 10 years old and suffers from narcolepsy, evidence of which can be seen in the panning shots which are supposed to create a segway to the next scene but linger way too long. The acting is, for the want of a better term, dire. It is quite clear that most of the actors are low on cash and have done a turn for a quick injection in their pocket books, which only helps to seal the fate of this abomination. I liked most of the actors in this movie prior to seeing it, now their credibility along with my admiration have dispersed quicker than a whale turd. Whoever suggested this is a movie to stick at an enjoy, or the viewer has to work to enjoy, must be from the cast, crew, family or financiers. Truly awful suggestion.
