The cast is rounded out with likable comedians, but this fable can't decide if it's going to be deliciously bad or morally upstanding.
Will Raee's feature wrings a few laughs from a strained premise, but remains far better suited to short-attention span formats than theatrical play.
Austin Found features a great ensemble cast, but never manages to explore unique territory.
Cardellini alone makes a case for the script's tonal swings, though even she can't take your ears off the droning musical score or the thuddingly on-the-nose song selections of music supervisor Nic Harcourt.
