CULT – 0

VERDICT – 0/5

 
PROS –
N/A

 

CONS –
1) The expectation was a Rated-R puppet black comedy of Sausage Party (2016) league. This movie is nothing of that sort.
2) An ordinary murder-plot with puppets – a sheer waste of time.

MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

Verdict – 1/5

Pros –
1) Ben Falcone managed a great ensemble of actors for his debut.

 

Cons –
1) The central character is not Tammy but Pearl. It’s Susan Sarandon’s show.
2) Incoherent screenplay; switching between comedy and drama
3) Absolute talent waste of Toni Collette, Kathy Bates, Allison Janney etc.

Pros –
1) Albert Brooks as Larry – he got the best lines in the movie.

Cons –
1) Chris O’Dowd – wasted talent
2) 30 minutes too long for a rom-com.

 

Quote –
Ronnie: Keith Richards looked 70 when he was 40. And now that he’s 70 he looks 69. He’s regenerating.

Quote –
Bob Stone: Phil, when this thing is over, I’m going to rip your throat out like Patrick Swayze in “Road House”.
Phil: Oh, my God, you and “Road House”. Get over that movie. It sucked then, it sucks now. The only movie that sucks more is “Sixteen Candles”.
Bob Stone: How dare you.

QUOTE –
Rick Ford: I once used defibrillators on myself. I put shards of glass in my fuckin’ eye. I’ve jumped from a high-rise building using only a raincoat as a parachute and broke both legs upon landing; I still had to pretend I was in a fucking Cirque du Soleil show! I’ve swallowed enough microchips and shit them back out again to make a computer. This arm has been ripped off completely and re-attached with *this* fuckin’ arm. During the threat of an assassination attempt, I appeared convincingly in front of Congress as Barack Obama.I watched the woman I love get tossed from a plane and hit by another plane mid-air. I drove a car off a freeway on top of a train while it was on fire. Not the car, *I* was on fire.
