Deserves the derision and disdain it will receive from mainstream movie-goers nationwide.
A fully disengaged brain is probably the key to enjoyment. Even basic logic engenders a recognition of how truly stupid this screenplay is.
At times dull and plodding and at other times cartoonishly silly, "Kin" rarely works and, when it does, it’s often for the wrong reasons.
Unappealing and stale, a barely-watchable combination of clichés and irrelevant tangents.
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.

Pointless, loud, seemingly longer than a Peter Jackson film, and missing a credible story, this is for "Maze Runner" completists only.
