Note: This is available on Netflix at the time of this review
This is a Netflix original movie. I’ve had good experience with Netflix original TV series, and along with the well known stars in this film, and I was tentatively optimistic on watching this.
Yeah…Jumbling together a load of cliches into a predictable, lazy plot and thinking that’s OK because it’s supposed to be Satire does not make a good movie.
I won’t deny that I did find it funny on occasion, as well as, eeeewwww, gross! On occasion, but, on the whole, it’s pretty forgettable.
I have seen much, much better films that are funny Westerns with good solid plots and good acting. All things that this film doesn’t have.
I like Adam Sandler, but, wow, him playing a serious character is not his forte, especially in a comedy. Actually, I don’t think I enjoyed any of the Actors in the film.
To sum up, Sort of funny, Cringe, bad, lazy plot, Forgettable
Was it worth the watch? No
Would I re-watch? No
