Top critical review
Good acting, slow plot, gratuitous language
Reviewed in the United States on May 13, 2018
Being a fan of Kurt Russell and Robin Williams, I was excited to see this. The premise sounded like a lot of fun, and it is generally well reviewed. But when I watched it with a group of people, all of us were extremely disappointed. It's an example of a good idea and fantastic acting that lacks solid writing to turn it into a good movie. The plot moved slowly and several scenes dragged or were unnecessary. The set-up took 1/2-3/4 of the movie and could easily have been squeezed into the first 20 minutes. And while the comedic acting was (of course) good, it was hampered down by a gratuitous amount of language. It seemed like every third or fourth sentence had some level of swearing or sexual reference in it. It's not a terrible movie by any means, and there are certainly entertaining aspects to it, but I didn't find it to be something I would watch again or particularly recommend to anyone.
