Witless, boring, and with a story that falls apart due to how artificially it's set up and put together, Don Verdean fails as a comedy due to a sore lack of funny jokes and it also fails as a drama because nothing is engaging enough to give your attention.
I have given writer and director Jared Hess five chances now. Even after the grossly overrated Napoleon Dynamite and abysmal efforts like Nacho Libre, Gentlemen Broncos, and Masterminds, I wanted to see if there's a good film lying within this guy. I was hoping against hope. With those five chances, he fucked all of them up, and I give up on this guy. You may disagree with my thoughts, but I couldn't care less. Jared Hess, you are a hack, you have always been a hack, and you will always be a hack. Fuck off.
