The gags, oh the gags. Just another contemporary comedy to laugh at contemporary status quo - but is it funny? Once you realize this is the same different-worlds-comedy we've been seen since the 80's, you can just press fast foward on you remote cont...wait. Just delete it from you notebook and you'll be fine.
I can't believe that I'm rating 3 stars for this but I actually found it funny. "THE TESLA OF TOILETS". And neither can I believe they got all those cameos! Free extra stars for all of them! GOTTA LOVE CAMEOS. #cameocrush
Pretty funny, crude, unpretentious, well-acted, timely, class-conscious (it at least tried, which is better than 90% of shit today), competently shot and edited, and it hits all its marks screenplay wise. Out of the sub-genre of holiday family comedies, this honestly beats most of them. And if you complain about the vulgarity in this film, then stop watching films because you are too immature to enjoy such treasures.
2 stars for bryan cranston and megan mullally having great chemistry and james franco did a good job with the character he portrayed.. other than that the jokes mostly fell flat and it was too invested in modern tech terms and internet lingo
Not as funny as I was thinking. I figured with combined comedic talents of Key and Franco this would be a pretty good comedy, but alas, it relies on the same tired dick jokes that were already tired 10+ yrs ago. Even Bryan Cranston cant save it. Deutch is beyond cute and understated, but was better in Everybody Wants Some earlier in the year. Mullaly drains every scene shes in. The story itself isnt bad, 2.5 stars
Franco is a uniquely disturbing blend of affable and obnoxious. Everyone else is more or less on autopilot. Good enough for social gravity if you're a couple of drinks deep and don't want your hold your attention to anything.
