CULT – 0

 

VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) Good fun movie with a decent screenplay.
2) “Anywair” sounds very interesting.
3) Jillian Bell as Trina – this terribly under-rated actress needs a full-length movie in the lead role. I’d even love to watch a spin-off movie featuring Trina as the central character.
4) Fortune Feimster as Lonny, the Uber Driver.

 

 

CONS –
N/A

Airline Concierge: I’m sorry, ma’am. All flights are grounded until the snow clears. There’s nothing more I can do.
Carol Vanstone: Well, refer me to someone who can do something!
Airline Concierge: That would be God, ma’am.
Carol Vanstone: Oh. Her.

CULT – 0

 

VERDICT – 1/5

 
PROS –
1) A pleasant surprise to see Christopher Walken as Feng.

 

 

CONS –
1) A promising plot suffering from a weak screenplay and poor writing. Except for the dead/fake panda joke, there is not a single good joke.
2) Dan Fogler playing a role tailor-made for Jonah Hill, Jack Black or someone from Team Apatow.
