bad
6 November 2016 | by angtimmSee all my reviews

Rented this because of some of the has been actors. The story is nothing short of ridiculous. It is absurd but not in a funny way in a really childish stupid way. The writer of this film seems simple. The script and the characters have no complexity. I get that it's supposed to be satirical but the writing is just so bad it's a movie with a dumb plot and no humor. It was tough to watch these actors struggle under such poor direction and with such a flimsy script. Attempted to watch this in one sitting but had to punish myself and my boyfriend by drawing out the pain over two sittings. Hope the writer has some other job because writing is not his or her strong suit. And the actors should really retire or do tanning salon commercials or Nutribullet infomercials. No talent in any area of this movie.
