Typical Trump idiots assuming the worst
2 January 2019 | by natcalgarySee all my reviews

Tons of reviewers stating this is an anti-trump movie. Political morons. they can't just enjoy a movie, they have to try to use it for political divide between each other. This has nothing to do with Trump and is really not left or right leaning. It is a black comedy that morphs into something I cant even explain at the end. It was deff. confusing, but with many slow parts in the first half, the change of story line in the last half deff, kept me interested.

Nothing special... 5.2
