Review: This attempted at intrigue doesn’t quite work. The hazy inset image feels time-worn, but irrelevant with such a big Paul Rudd head on the poster.

Trailer Rating: B-

SEE ALL TRAILERS BELOW
Review: As much as I love Paul Rudd, this trailer is dull as dishwater, lumbering about in its attempt to explain that this baseball Catcher has what it takes to be a major secret agent. We need a lot more action or suggestion of action to really make it feel tense and watchable.

Oscar Prospects:

On paper, it sure sounded like a potential Oscar contender. In reality, it does not appear to be much of anything.
