Why does this site not have ratings lower than awful?
6 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

Short N Sweet review with no spoilers and no story beats:

The budget is $5mil and I assume that 99% of it went to pay the actors, which isn't good for most of the cast as they probably were paid scale after Weaver and Shalhoub got the biggest chunk of it, i'm guessing Rodriguez got paid in stamps; for future roles when she decides to "mail it in".

It was such an awful movie and yet I couldn't look away. Save yourself the hour and a half and go watch paint dry, it'll make for a better story to tell your friends.
