    ★½

    Too much on the ridiculous front to be considered quality comedy. The jokes are mostly flat and a number of scenes fall on the side of stupidity, like VP Murney aka Little Puppet (played by Brad Garrett) thinking he could out-wrestle a former Navy Seal in Diesel's character. As if!

    A) JDM channeling his alter-ego Negan from Walking Dead.

    B) that supersized crocodile was a blast! The best of the altered beasts.

    I had high hopes for EWS, since it IS Richard Linklater's ode to his previously stellar film, Dazed and Confused. And I thought that was a pretty darn good flick! D&C had to do with the the last days of high school in Texas, 1976. Now fast forward a few years in time and you have this jumbled mess of a movie, set in 1980 and all about the boys of a fictitious college baseball team in Texas. All they…
