Thoughts

We felt like watching another spoof, something mindless to soothe a restless brain, and were heading towards Scary Movie. However, before we got there, we went down a rabbithole and saw Chris Evans in this - thought it might be worth a go. Unfortunately, couldn’t get much past the twenty minute rule - it was just too busy. Spoofs are always hit and miss, that’s fine, some bits are funny and some aren’t, but this was trying to do so much that it ended up just being too much.
