"Comedy"
21 April 2019 | by lotrlindholmSee all my reviews

This film commits the biggest sin a comedy can, by being boring. The "comedic" parts of the film falls utterly flat combined with the terrible performances given by the main cast.

With more jumpcuts than a YouTube vlog, there is nothing redeeming about this film that would make it worth watching. Save yourself and stay far away!
