    Incredibly tired plot but this is more about the lead actors anyway. Love Cranston, Franco is fine. Think this was written/directed by the guy who did I Love You Man (a favorite of mine) so I'll give this a shot.

    Take arms, it'll all blow over Prestigious

    This looks really bad. Didn't find anything remotely funny in this. Hell I was getting tired of Cranston's reactions to Franco's character's high-jinx 30 seconds in. Roll eyes, shrug shoulders, queue the laugh track.
  4. Yeah, we've seen this plot a thousand times but still I love the cast and thought the trailer had some chuckles. Count me in

    Trailer seemed choppy and repetitive. Clearly still in post, but still, I agree - there are like 3 separate reaction shots that look nearly identical in a 2 minute trailer...

    The red-band trailer didn't even get a chuckle out of me.

    Should be hilarious.

    Tried to see Rogue One today but it was sold out so I decided to see this and I was very pleasantly surprised. Definitely not the funniest or most original movie ever, or even of the year, but it was a very enjoyable way to spend my afternoon. Franco is really funny the whole movie, Key is great as always, Cranston is game for anything, and Megan Mullaly and Zoey Deutch are underused but still good.

    I definitely don't regret seeing this, it's a very solid comedy.

    Can't believe people were into this. I watched the first hour of it and couldn't take anymore.

    Yeah idk. This was fine, and I've only ever been able to tolerate Franco in small doses beyond Pineapple Express. I intend on seeing it again.

    I don't see how you could dislike Franco and like this movie. He was at his most intolerable in this. His character is so over the top and unrealistic it's insane.

    Yeah you're probably right. It doesn't make a lot of sense. Still enjoyed it, maybe it was a good theater experience. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
