STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 0
ACTOR – 0
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 1

Verdict – 2/5

 

Pros –
1) The “Sony-hack-event” gives this movie a reputation/notoriety of almost starting a nuclear war and thus already a cult status.
2) Eminem Cameo.
3) Few establishing shots.

 

Cons –
1) Great concept but badly executed.
2) Latest in the streak of bad movies for Seth Rogen.
3) A stoner angle would have been better.
