Managed to be good, but threatened to be great.
3 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

I'll make this a quick review because I think this film deserves one. I liked it. Its quite enjoyable and as comedy's go its pretty solid material but it's no classic, nor do I think it will receive any real acclaim.

Great performances, story and script are reasonable, but it needed something more... just that little extra something that would have made it rip roaringly funny. It has good well written jokes, but nothing brought me a belly laugh. Well acted, but nothing had me whooping, shaking my head in defensive appreciation or laughing out loud.

I think things needed to be dialled up a notch because the humour aspect really needed to be on the next level to make it a comedic success. I don't know humour that well so can't identify the failings, I just know funny when it happens and laugh when something's funny. This one was on the verge, it almost delivered but not quite.

Still a reasonable film and worth a watch. I did chuckle in quite a few places and I did enjoy it, but it always threatened so much more and I so much wanted it to deliver.
