In her infinite wisdom, Lucy leads her staff including her long-suffering assistants, Freddie (Karan Soni) and Jess (Jessica Williams), on a corporate team-building caving weekend to New Mexico. When disaster strikes, not even their useless guide, Brandon (Ed Helms), can save them. Trapped underground by a cave-in, this mismatched and disgruntled group must pull together in order to survive.

Did You Know?


Ed Helms revealed during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live that during the making of this film his publicist called and said there were rumors floating around that Helms was having an affair with co-star Demi Moore and the publicist wanted to know if that was true. Helms denied it saying he was a happily married man. After the call, he began freaking out a bit realizing he needed to let his wife know. But when he told her and his mother about the story, they just laughed and said "Demi Moore, high five!" They thought it was hilarious that anyone would think he and Moore would be a couple.

Lucy: We need to make this decision as a team, and there's no "I" in team.
Derek: Yeah but if you swap the letters around it spells meat.

Not Funny Black Comedy
29 April 2020 | by stasifSee all my reviews

I've watched this movie only because of its trailer, which was really curiosity. It is said that the genre of the movie is comedy and horror but it is not. There is nothing horror and funny. It's more like black comedy without comedy. The story is about a bunch of colleagues trapped in the cave during their corporate interaction course, which was failed (in my opinion). They do nothing to escape, just sitting and waiting, except two ladies which make love in the closed space. It appears that all of them try to manage their course in the cave without FOOD. As the food they had only one pack of a eatable cutlery: one fork, one spoon, and one knife. I don't know is that possible (eatable fork) or not, and the story do not reveal this too. However, the story reveals a new food source and that is a humanbody of a dead human (one of the group died). The director actually shows how they eat a raw meat. I don't know what was that. What is the covert message of the movie? Looks like a propaganda for future admissible cannibalism. That is not the only problem the movie has. There are some illogical points, which i will not describe because of spoilers.
