I like Jesse Eisenberg, and he’s a good actor -as proven by his other work- but most of the acting really is not good in this movie. At best, Eisenberg presents many of his lines with if not an originality, then at least with a reality instead of coming across as though he’s reading from a script.

Nothing about this movie was groundbreaking, but I was able to find it mildly entertaining. There were a few points were I laughed out loud, and after finishing the movie I would say that I enjoyed it.

My Rating: 5/10

I gave this movie exactly a passing grade. Because I came out saying that it was okay/enjoyable means that for all of the badness, at least I wasn’t bored or regretting my choice in watching it.
