Despite a committed performance from Mackenzie Davis, the film corkscrews into a death spiral of trite dialogue meant to obfuscate the lack of a meaningful narrative.
Unappealing and stale, a barely-watchable combination of clichés and irrelevant tangents.
This clumsy, straightforward caper comedy is neither funny nor clever and leaves no lasting impression beyond the desire to warn people to stay away.
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.
If there’s something less subtle than a sledgehammer, it applies here.
Calling the next sequel "Resurrection" was appropriate because "Alien 3" killed the series and left it dead and stinking in the cold vacuum of space.

Pointless, loud, seemingly longer than a Peter Jackson film, and missing a credible story, this is for "Maze Runner" completists only.
Perhaps the “Wonder” in "Wonder Wheel" is that anyone agreed to produce something so tired, joyless, and uninspired.
A tonal disaster – an awkward and ineffective attempt to blend dark comedy with social commentary.
Artificial and reeking of white privilege, this is the kind of movie that causes people to mutter things about “entitlement” when speaking of the “Hollywood elite.”
