Typical Ed Helms movie in just about every way.
23 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

This is exactly who Ed Helms plays in almost every single thing he does. Just this sort of middle-aged sad sack schlubbing his way through life, not really depressed or sad, just going no where fast. And inevitably there's a far younger attractive woman toiling away at a dead end job with a whacky dream job whom he sparks up a romance with only to get in his own way time and time again because hey...it's Ed Helms and that's what he does. Dorky schlub that over reacts and makes life difficult for himself until everything magically works out in the end and everyone is happy.

That's honestly the entire movie. There weren't really any laughs, the plot is very thin, and the acting and interactions just never really seemed to have any life to it. It's just a guy who makes a living by sitting in infomercial audiences and a late night talk show notices him and starts up a nightly bit turning him into a sort of mystery sensation. This gets in the way of his romance. And there you go, that's the movie.

It's unoffensive and easy background noise but there's nothing special, unique, or charming about it. It's a pretty paint by number rom-com and literally the exact same thing Ed Helms does in every single appearance. Also can we stop having lame old guys being matched up with far younger attractive women? I just don't buy it. Watch if you're bored with absolutely nothing else to keep you occupied.
