It lacks a big movie star and bigger laughs, and the script does not have the depth needed to pull off this film. There's one thing for certain. You'll stay in your seat, but you won't be happy with the time you've spent in the theater.
Beneath the overacting, over-the-top antics, & non-original story, you would think this movie is all smoke & mirrors. But when you add up Cena's seriousness, Key's physical comedy, & Leguizamo's high strung energy, it's almost enjoyable to watch.
While it's a premise with decidedly limited potential, it could have been something watchable, but terrible writing, utterly bizarre pacing, and thoughtless, rote execution doom it to a far more dismal fate.
