SMALL CRACK-UPS IN A GRASS MENAGERIE, US, 110 MIN

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - MOVIES -

Mid­dling com­edy lack­ing the smarts to cap­i­talise on a clever premise. Ja­son Sudeikis stars as a low-level pot dealer forced to par­tic­i­pate in a high-stakes drugs deal to get rid of a crush­ing debt to his sup­plier. In or­der to smug­gle a ma­jor mar­i­juana haul across the Mex­i­can bor­der, he gath­ers a mot­ley bunch (in­clud­ing Jennifer Anis­ton as a strip­per) to pose as his fake fam­ily to avoid sus­pi­cion. There are just enough laughs to be had to al­low this sketchy, smutty af­fair the ben­e­fit of the doubt. There are never enough laughs to be had to ex­tin­guish any doubt it is not as funny as it might have been. Co-stars Emma Roberts, Nick Of­fer­man.

Ja­son Sudeikis and Matthew Wil­lig
