Storyline

When two buddies' drunken debate about whose father would win in a fight is taken seriously by one of their fathers, things go bad.

Like a car without a driver, this movie has no direction.
20 July 2018 | by rwlefaivre-26233See all my reviews

This movie had a lot of promise after watching the trailer; however, it was poorly executed. Poor sense of humor, semi tolerable plot, and decent acting is how I would describe this movie. After the first 20 minutes, you realize you're better off watching something else.
