Credit outtakes almost make up for rest of movie
22 September 2019 | by mark-23851See all my reviews

It was watchable and had a few humorous moments throughout but I laughed much more during the credit outtakes than during any other part of the film. They probably should have just rolled that for 90 minutes.
