If you saw the trailer for this movie and said to yourself that it didn't look like this had much of a plot, go ahead and give yourself a thumbs up for being right. Here is how thin this movie is. The total running time (including end credits) is only 84 minutes, and there are no less than three musical montages, (read "filler"), in the film.
It is truly disappointing that the likes of Adam Devine and Alexandra Shipp had to waste their incredible talents on a screenplay as terrible as this one. They did their best to make this movie fun and likable, but despite their efforts it just comes across as cliche and obnoxious.
I am happy to say there are a couple of good laughs, but a couple doesn't cut it in a raunchy comedy. The good ones make you leave with your face hurting from laughing so much. This film isn't even close to that standard.
This is a completely forgettable and feeble attempt at comedy. There are so many better movies out now. Don't waste your money on this one.
