I would like to sarcastically thank the powers that be behind this film for releasing it so late in the year that I now have the extra work of going back and revamping my Worst 10 Films of 2018 list. You couldn't have waited one more week? Ugh.
Ladies and gentlemen, this movie is a tragedy. It is amazingly unfunny, pathetically childish, boring, annoying, and a complete waste of everyone's time.
In fact, it is so bad, I felt like I needed to do a public service, so during the movie I went out to the concession area, (trust me, I didn't miss anything worthy or important), and talked four people out of buying a ticket to the next showing. (You're welcome, MARRY POPPINS RETURNS for the extra $35 in sales). This is also the point where I realized that it is a shocking omission that movie concession stands don't sell hard liquor, because I sure could have used some to get through the last 45 minutes of this film that feels like that super-painful zit you sometimes get right on the inside of your nose. Dang, that hurts.
Seriously, don't go see this. It is so bad. The true mystery here is, how on earth did this movie make it to final print and distribution without someone mercifully pulling the plug on it.
Save yourself. It's too late for me.
