Verdict – 0/5

Pros –

N/A

 

Cons –

1) A movie so clueless that it wasn’t even able to pull off decent cameo plot for David Hasselhoff & Pamela Anderson.Absolute disaster.
2) A so-called comedy movie where you end up killing Hannibal Buress.
3) Dick jokes from stone-age
4) Priyanka Chopra as Victoria Leeds – a weak fancy annoying character with zero scope
5) For the director Seth Gordon, another reason to quit hollywood.

CULT – 0

Verdict – 0/5

 

Pros –

 

1) Henry Zebrowski & Mo Collins as Buddy Cop Duo

 

Cons –

 

1) One of those movie where you know the entire story just after watching the trailer.
2) Full of middle-school humor and it’s a forgettable one-time watch
3) Aubrey Plaza as Lenore – Why she agreed to do this cheap-ass American Pie rip-off is the big question.Actresses tends to do such role on their debut not after getting established.
4) As far as De Niro is concerned, it appears he just wants to have fun by making such silly comedies.It won’t hurt his legacy anyway.
