War on Everyone somehow manages to revel in its own cleverness without actually being very clever.
The dialogue is inorganic and often doesn't serve any purpose beyond trying to be witty, but every "clever" line is so unnaturally set up that it never feels clever.
Despite the dark and edgy plot, the protagonists don't seem to struggle much in the second or third acts. Even when they do, the consequences are so minimal that the stakes are undermined entirely.
It never feels like the individual scenes are supporting any central points or ideas, the myriad of wise-cracks and allusions just feel like back-patting.
That said, there are smatterings of screenwriting competence and a few cast members shine through the others' overacting.
