Keep Kaling off screen.
8 March 2019 | by sjgbeauchamp-19927See all my reviews

Mindy Kaling may write funny but that should be the extent of her duties in Hollywood. Her voice, expressions and over all acting are horrendous. Besides that, an okay script not far removed from any work place film, stealing (borrowing) heavily from its predecessors.
