    ★★★½

    Even though this kinda film isn't my jam, it delivers exactly what it promised, and probably more. Extremely well filmed, and unapologetically forces the audience into the abyss along with its characters.

    This movie is an unfunny, poorly written, badly edited, crap idea which takes a large bore shit on the idea of comedy.

    An ill-conceived premise in which you care about none of the characters, and cannot justify any of their actions or points of view.

    Relying too heavily on cheap gags to bolster a paper-thin script, it was almost embarrassing to sit in a theatre where no-one was laughing for VERY long stretches of the movie.
