Invested in audiences buying these two as a mismatched couple but the lack of a connection between Faris and Derbez makes it an unwise venture.
More often than not, "Tully" comes across as a group of relatable characters marooned in a story with nowhere to go.
Acting and chemistry aren’t enough and the material isn’t strong enough to captivate for the full 90 minutes the way it does during the first 30.
This more-dumb-than-funny stoner comedy has its moments, although not nearly enough of them.

With an unwavering devotion to spectacle and action, the film throws down a gauntlet where this kind of mass team-up is concerned.
"Midnight Madness" probably lives in the memories of some as an engagingly dumb slice of ‘80s moviedom and it’s better left there.
Deserves to be seen for all that’s good and original about it and for the distinctive way it uses monster movies and monster movie conventions.

A sequel made for (and funded by) Super Troopers die-hards. It’s hard to imagine the uninitiated getting much out of it.
Engages because the actors are sufficiently invested that they give breadth and depth to characters who are, for the most part, underwritten.
If there’s something less subtle than a sledgehammer, it applies here.
