The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM -

It’s worse than you might have feared. Here is a film so poor, so half-ar­sed, so con­temp­tu­ous of its au­di­ence, that it screws up one of the great, (pre­vi­ously) in­fal­li­ble tropes of con­tem­po­rary cin­ema: the David Hassle­hoff cameo. The part­ner­ship be­tween Johnson and Efron is squan­dered. There is barely enough story to fill a TV episode. Early on, Zac won­ders aloud if this isn’t just some sadis­tic haz­ing rit­ual. Maybe it is. 12A cert, gen re­lease, 118 min
