My reaction
Concept:1/4 (Bad)
Story:1/4 (Bad)
Characters:2/4 (Indifferent)
Dialog:2/4 (Indifferent)
Pacing:2/4 (Indifferent)
Cinematography:2/4 (Indifferent)
Special effects/design:2/4 (Indifferent)
Acting:2/4 (Indifferent)
Music:3/4 (Good)
Subjective Rating: 5/10 (Indifferent, 2/4 (Indifferent)). I can think of worse ways to spend 90 minutes. There isn’t anything memorably funny (except for one non sequitur line about a possum), but there’s a base level of silliness that’s enough to keep things going.
Objective Rating (Average):1.9/4 (Eh)
