An early release would be nice.

Why? It comes out it two weeks. There’s no reason for them to release it early. They aren’t losing subscription revenue during the pandemic.

Production on their future releases are halted. They need to keep their release schedule the way it is to make sure people hopefully don’t see too big of a disruption.

Loved it. All the characters played well off each other. Highly recommended if you need a laugh.

I'll try again when I have the patience. But that kid acting like a brat in the early scenes made me give up.

The forced trailer while perusing Netflix made it seem annoying, but I guess there are a couple good reviews on here. I'll check it out.


EDIT - I just realized those are spoof posters

I watched the first half hour and it barely registered a chuckle. Does it get better?

This was all around terrible. I donít think I laughed once. It was trying to be funny. It thought it was being funny. It was not funny. Ed Helms played his character so annoyingly stupid and naive it ruined any sort of fun this movie had going for it. Eventually I started to wonder if his character was low functioning or something.

The kid who played Kareem was good but he played it one-note through to the very end and had so little character development, even when the movie called for it, that it was almost non-existent and was ultimately pointless.

I liked Taraji P. Henson too but her character was under-utilized and about 1/3 of the way into the movie she was almost completely forgotten about until the end

No

Agreed. I like my vulgar movies as much as the next guy but it became excessive. The scene where Kareem was teaching Coffee how to be ďgayĒ was supposed to play as funny but quickly became uncomfortable for me.

I admit that was the funniest part of the movie for me.
