Review: (#1) It’s supposed to be a dark comedy and the trailer hints at some elements of that, but it never quite gets to a point where the audience is impressed or interested enough to give it a go.

(#2) The darkness of the first trailer is still here, but this time we get some of the actual humor to go along with it, which makes the film seem far more interesting than previously thought.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
