Sorry for Our Loss of Two Hours
14 May 2020 | by myronlearnSee all my reviews

Poorly written. Did the writer have any serious background in comedy? If he did, it was a waste of his time and, unfortunately, ours. The acting was better than the writing, but it too fell short. It's hard to capture the essence of a character if it's so badly written. I think I overrated this attempt at comedy by one star.
