Not a bad comedy for a Netflix original
22 July 2018 | by datorsiers2See all my reviews

Do not look at the 1 star reviews here on imdb, for a Netflix comedy it was actually pretty decent and had far more original funny scenes than i had anticipated, of course some of the scenes were cringy, but that is besides the point, it is supposed to be an over the top teen comedy.

David Spade and Nat Faxon were great in this movie, usually not the biggest fan of these actors, can not understand why people give this movie horrible reviews/ratings. This film is just simple, dumb fun and nothing more, do not take it seriously, sit back, relax and enjoy the dumb Adam Sandler type of fun.
