The whole thing unraveled for me when
[Show spoiler]they showed the trip of the school paper from the printing press to the mobster's cell. I know you're supposed to suspend disbelief, but are we really supposed to just accept that one solitary paper printed in a school in France would, through a series of insane coincidences, happen to be the exact paper used to wrap up the bottle? Also, why would they even read that paper when it was obviously just the wrapping?
After that, I was just kind of like "Ok, they couldn't have come up with something better to move the plot along?"
YES! that unbelievable scene is where it went from okay to borderline Bad.

Was hoping to like this but though it was a dark comedy, it mostly was not very funny. 2/5.

Might see this, doesn't look overly amazing but should be fun at least.

There were plenty of jokes, it's just that they all fell flat.
Here's to the rubble. A brick through every window, a casket buried six feet deep for everybody's heroes. Here's to our lives being meaningless. And how beautiful it is, because freedom doesn't have a purpose.

I liked it. Would be cool if Dianna Agron was my sister.

It would be quite UNcool if Agron was my sister.

I'd be dealing with all kinds of inner conflict and feelings

You can be close to a sister. If you really need a girlfriend she could hook you up with a cute friend of hers. Relationships tend to fade. Sisters are for life.

I liked the movie!
Dianna Agron and Michelle Pfeiffer were the best imo.
The movie was a little slow at times but I enjoy movies like this.
Plus I have a girl crush on Dianna so yeah, I'll give it a 4/5.

Saw this today, an average movie at best and with the cast and director for this film, I was expecting this to be a solid offering...sadly, it fell short for me...

Went just for Dianna Agron and I enjoyed it... I hope she takes more action roles! I do wish that the scenes with that loud, overbearing music dropped the music, if you look at the clip of Dianna beating the kid with the tennis racket online that music isn't edited in, I much prefer it like that. Besides those pieces I thought the score was fitting for the film.

I really enjoyed Agron in this. I honestly thought she'd just play QUINN type roles forever.

But she was a violent, foul mouthed, teacher banging total opposite of her GLEE days. I liked it.

I just started season 2 of Heroes on BD and was surprised to see her... as a mean cheerleader. I honestly could not care less what her role was, as long as she was in it but it was cool to see her in Heroes, and then Kristen Bell showed up which is making me think season 2 might be my favorite.
