Review: (#1) Not-so-subtle crude humor is more than fitting to this film’s capabilities. It should help set the tone of expectations for the film. (#2) Parodying Fifty Shades of Grey is one thing, but how does this do that? It doesn’t. It’s more of an homage to all the cheap action thriller designs of recent years, which isn’t at all executed hilariously.

Trailer Rating: B / B+

Review: (#1 & #2) It has become customary to release a PG-13-rated trailer and an R-rated trailer for any film that captures those ratings. The so-called red band trailers are, in general, funnier or more compelling their their PG-13 rated version. That is definitely the case here where some of the humor is muted in the Green-Band trailer and more hard-hitting in the Red.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
