Good cast in a weak and sloppy story
13 July 2019 | by bopdogSee all my reviews

Any honest review would be, likely, misleading. There ARE funny gags here and there and decent moments - but overall the narrative is clunky and coarse. Not much fits together. It's as if this was only the second draft of a project that would ultimately need five or eight drafts to be good.

The secondary characters were haphazard, and many were not at all fitted into the Big Story. Certainly no sense of an ensemble. I will avoid all potential spoilers, so let me just say that several outstanding female actors played characters who just sort of showed up, related to nothing, then moved on. That was perplexing. One Oscar winner's character in this was so obscure I honestly can't place her now. Hahaha!

Enough said without names - but that disjointed, unexplained aspect was rife throughout the movie. I'd say this movie would more accurately be a 4, but I scored upwards because they tried hard. So a "5" score is actually generous.

I actively ignored the quality of the movie, and the texture of the narrative, as one does when watching a "proof of concept draft" or a very early and rough draft. If it was bad in that passage, I just let it be bad, and breeze on by me. I didn't try to analyze it or look too closely. Doing that, half watching and half ignoring it, I was able to stay in the theater to the end. Overall, I kind of enjoyed myself, although will not be bothering with the DVD.

P.S. I like and admire the cast! Just not in this movie.
