This is the beyond awful
19 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

I am perplexed by all the good reviews here, a more suspicious mind might suspect some kind of scam...

This film was horrific for all the wrong reasons, a dead at birth script of such dullness that was only matched by the actors attempts to kill it even more; everyone seemed to be on tranquillisers, lurching around like Frankensteins' monster.

The story arc just did not make sense either, just random cause and effect and illogical consequences... The director must have another day job and lets hope he returns to it ASAP.

As for Vince Vaughn, this attempt at playing it straight is maybe his most laughable role yet.

I want my 2 hours back!
