Overlong, talky, filled with meta references, and with a strangely low-energy tone, the movie never fully gels.
Offers a mix of honesty and artifice - some scenes simmer with truth; others are too obviously the construct of a screenplay.
The film’s predictability is offset by what Hart and Cranston bring to the proceedings.

An uneven but ultimately satisfying thriller seamlessly blends horror and thriller elements across its 108-minute running time.
During the final half hour, everything compelling about this low-budget thriller collapses in a miasma of idiocy.
By adding cumbersome elements to the narrative, it ultimately detracts from the core human story.
"Destroyer" keeps the tone dark, eschewing anything resembling a traditional crime story and allowing Nicole Kidman's performance to take front stage.
A well-paced science fiction action thriller with elements of drama, whimsy, and a strong inter-species buddy movie element.
Devoid of complex plotting, comprehensive world-building, and narrative twists, "Aquaman" seems strangely out-of-step with where the genre is going.
There’s nothing surprising or especially interesting - anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of politics will find the terrain familiar and a little stale.
