Friendsgiving (Blu-ray) review

Friendsgiving (Blu-ray) review
« on: October 23, 2020, 05:12:07 PM »


Studio: Lionsgate  
 Release Date: October 27, 2020
Rating:  R
Film:  0/5
 
 Plot
 Abby (Kat Dennings) is looking forward to a laid-back Thanksgiving with her best friend, Molly (Malin Akerman). But the friends’ plans for a quiet turkey dinner go up in smoke when they’re joined by Molly’s new boyfriend and her flamboyant mother (Jane Seymour). Throw in some party crashers including Molly’s old flame, a wannabe shaman, and a trio of Fairy Gay Mothers (Wanda Sykes, Margaret Cho, and Fortune Feimster), and it’s a recipe for a comically chaotic holiday no one will ever forget — even if they wanted to!
 
 My Thoughts
 The very first film I ever reviewed was My Bosses Daughter, which up until this day had been the worst film I have ever watched. Well, the torch has finally been passed after 16 years to this piece of trash film from the producer of Zoolander and Tropic Thunder. There are so many adjectives to describe this film—lazy, trite, classless, stupid, and just plain crude. When you hear people say that Hollywood is out of touch with “normal” Americans all you need to do is watch this movie to see what they think is funny and hit. I call it disgusting.

  
 Video 4/5 
 
 Audio 4/5 (DTS-HD 5.1)
 
 Special Features:
 
  • Audio Commentary with Writer-Director Nicol Paone and Producer-Actor Malin Akerman
  • Making Friendsgiving: Serving Up Insanity
  • Gag Reel
 

 
 

 Conclusion
 As you can tell, I hated this film and ended up shutting it off. I can count on one hand the number of movies I’ve done that to in my 51 years of life. Could it have gotten better in the second half? I doubt it. It just wasn’t my cup of tea and my wife hated it more than I did. She just walked in the room and said 0/5 was too high of score for it.

Up to you, but remember, it's time you'll never get back. It will end up on Netflix before you know it.
