Yet another bland Indonesian comedy
28 January 2018 | by dwiremanSee all my reviews

This movie is your typical play-safe Indonesian comedy with all the irritating elements you'd expect from one of these:

  • Cliche plot
  • Useless characters who do nothing but dispense jokes
  • Entire scenes that do nothing to the plot whatsoever except deliver a lame punchline

Added to all those, this movie also has:

  • Unconvincing characters
  • Bland cinematography (despite some genuinely beautiful settings)
  • Bland, monotonous score
  • Too many character arcs and subplots that felt forced and unnecessary

All in all, this movie was a waste of time (110 minutes) and is exactly like a bland bowl of reheated Meatball Soup - you know how it's gonna taste, you know there's a lot of better options but you settle for this because you lack imagination and decent taste.
