    BATTER UP!

    Thin plot that is boring, cliche, and feels like it was designed with a checklist of what beats to hit rather than from a creative vision.
    STRIKE ONE!

    Characters are either hilariously cliched, one-note, bland (in a "perfect goody two shoes vs the evil bad guy" way), and/or just flat out annoying + unfunny.
    STRIKE THREE!

    YOU'RE OUT!!
