What a tiresome and retarded mess!!
21 July 2018 | by LogicIsEverythingSee all my reviews

When I watched this film to the middle of it, I've found out that my patience has dwindled less and less. The director and the screenplay writers seemed not be able to distinguish the thin line between "Comedy" and "Farce". When a script dramatized to an absurd level, a supposed to be potential comedy would be gradually turned into a ridiculous farce. The actors recruited to play the roles in this film all had to act so pretentiously with exaggerated facial expressions and body language in order to match what the screenplay crafted. So after about 30 to 40 minutes, it has become so tiresome to watch, since you have to watch all the actors in it, cops and bad guys all became clowns and jokers, they looked all the same, everybody just looked like loose cannons to over-the-top jerk themselves around, none of them believable and convincing enough to what they should be.

This film is a mess! A certified ridiculous "Farce" instead of a qualified "Comedy". The endless and non-stop jerk-around performances of all the actors would force you to watch along while distant yourself farther and farther until you became numb without any involvement of any feelings. Guys who considered this film funny and great must have their brain and I.Q. checked twice, some unknown damages might exist. Go check it out sooner than later.
