Although not a romantic comedy (the central relationship is of a platonic nature), it has some of the rhythms one commonly associates with the genre.
Illustrates what happens when filmmakers take a moderately interesting premise and surround it with witless writing, cringe-inducing acting, stagnant action, humor-deprived comedy, and feckless drama.

What works as a sizzle reel totaling three minutes shows its inherent shallowness when expanded to nearly two hours.
Never takes itself too seriously, delivers all the goods one expects from this sort of action-thriller, and doesn’t overstay its welcome.

The flaws of "Justice League" were rooted too deeply for even a complete reworking to solve them.
A sometimes-riveting old-fashioned spy thriller that is occasionally reminiscent of the fictional works of John Le Carre and Len Deighton.
"Coming 2 America" will disappoint only those who believed Murphy could do something amazing or hilarious with this dubious property.
At times unpolished but offers a sympathetic portrayal of the title character and avoids excessive melodrama or a too-facile ending.
History buffs, especially those with an affinity for World War II stories and/or an interest in 20th century Czechoslovakia, may enjoy what "The Affair" has to offer
