      Lackluster performances and fluff humor can't keep this wreck from sinking.

      Alexander H A "so-bad-its-good" film. Underrated imo Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/07/24 Full Review Cork B Wow. It was stupid, which is forgivable. But it is also amazingly unfunny, which is not. I made it about 2/3 through before giving up. SOOO many stupid characters who make unbelievably dumb decisions. This movie thinks humor comes from hicks not wearing pants. Hint: no, it doesn't. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 10/11/23 Full Review John K I'm really surprised at the low Rotten rating. I thought it was funny but it has an offbeat sort of timing that not everyone appreciates. It clicked with me. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/27/22 Full Review Audience Member Ew, what the ****ing ****?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Who cares............. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a alright comedy, not the best movie and not the best comedy I have ever seen. It is a 90's nostalgia throw back, alright to pass a hour kinda funny Jamie Foxx ends up running into a bunch of characters in a small hick town mini mart I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it.
