VERDICT – 2/5

 
PROS –
1) The only bearable scenes of the movie are between O’Shea Jackson Jr. and Seth Rogen.
2) Andy Serkis as Parker Wembley – unrecognizable in that makeup.

 
CONS –
1) While the complete movie was already ruined in the trailer, I decided to watch it anyway for the sake of Seth Rogen but the movie is a big bag of disappointment.

Verdict – 2/5

 
Pros –

Cons –
1) Average murder-mystery with one plot-twist.
2) 30 minutes too long. Too much time taken in establishing that Rachel got some psychological illness to confuse the audiences.
