A passable way to throw away 100 minutes if you’re willing to turn off your brain and pretend it’s making sense.
Although the series hasn’t been reduced to the harebrained level of a big-screen children’s cartoon, the latest chapter is the least sophisticated of the movies.
Pugh’s performance is the best thing about the movie but the story, despite Merchant’s comedic flourishes, feels stale at times.
Little more than a B-movie with strong production values and an eclectic cast, this is far from Jordan at his best.
The film’s predictability is offset by what Hart and Cranston bring to the proceedings.
The gallows humor is pervasive, giving the production, which sometimes crosses over a line into outright parody, a quirky tone.

Mired in clichés with a narrative constrained by a bland and generic structure.
During the final half hour, everything compelling about this low-budget thriller collapses in a miasma of idiocy.
Wastes its premise while offering little more than a sparkling Henson performance to distract us from the underwritten screenplay.
