My reaction
Concept:0/4 (Terrible)
Story:0/4 (Terrible)
Characters:1/4 (Bad)

Pacing:0/4 (Terrible) The movie’s kind of slow, but mostly I’m taking off in this category for the complete lack of comedic timing.
Cinematography:2/4 (Indifferent)
Special effects/design:2/4 (Indifferent)
Acting:1/4 (Bad)
Music:1/4 (Bad)
Subjective Rating: 3/10 (Bad, 1/4 (Bad)). People who are usually hilarious, trying really hard to be funny and completely failing. I found myself laughing out of nervous awkwardness.
