Awful, just awful
19 July 2016 | by mark-4037See all my reviews

Possibly the most boring film I have ever seen. Not funny, the camera person appeared to trip up regularly as they were moving around and I have no idea what the story was. It could easily have been something a high school art student put together, such was the quality. The parts I think were meant to be funny were dull and predictable. The acting was terrible, at one point a woman took a drink from a hip flask but didn't tilt it as she lowered it, clearly showing there was nothing in it. I have never seen so many people walk out of a film before (and I've seen some howlers) I think this was meant to have a deeper meaning but it was buried so deep as to be non existent. Just do whatever you can to avoid this.
