2/5 85% On the Count of Three (2021) While the script from writers Katcher and Welch has a substantive plot that opens up a Pandora's Box of issues these mentally unstable men are dealing with, the dry humor and flat performances are not enough to give this bland film some flavor. - Black Girl Nerds EDIT
