And it wasn't one of those good stupid moves either.
It was not funny at all, and the plot was bad!
For TV and B-Film fans this list might read rather strongly but don't let it fool you. Even with all its seasoned actors Grilled can't find its footing and its relatively young director lets the film fall flat on its face. Jason Ensler, whose directing experience comes from a series of TV shows, can handle all the basics but can't deliver the punch lines. Its a shame when each actor brings their A-Game and its the behind the scenes folks who can't pull it through in the end.
With a runtime of only 1hr 23mins you wouldn't expect to be all that bored but that short runtime feels like ages with an ending that brings tears to your eyes (mostly because its finally over). The only real reason to even step out and watch this film is for fans of Ray Romano, Kevin James, and to a lesser extent Burt Reynolds. I'm still annoyed by the fact that I rented the film, primarily because just as soon as I turned it off I saw it on Comedy Central, but also because I paid money for it.
Please just save your money and avoid the film. If you want to see Ray Romano or Kevin James I recommend buying some season episodes of Everybody loves Raymond and King of Queens
It's not really worth seeing unless you have a soft spot for these characters on their regular sitcoms in which case, you should watch it, just to see if they can act.
It's the closest thing you'll ever get to an actual crossover.
