Junk, don't waste your time
10 February 2019 | by mcollectSee all my reviews

I enjoy my fair share of cuss words but this was ridiculous. Not crass funny, just nasty. I was really excited to see this movie but it was not funny like I thought it would be, and sad to see Taraji's talent go to waste.
