Funny movie about Fresno Ca

Watch it... It is good
age 18+

Horrible unfunny drivel. Dark humor not done right.

Characters are insufferable, unlikable and grossly deranged. Yet we are expected to care. No sense of tone or pacing. Not even any satirically complex looks at the dark dilemma to hold it. Audrey Plaza wasted in throw away role that she clearly doesnt care about. Only giggle it got was a completely non seqieter scene at a bar mitzfah and only cuz it was so cringey.

Is It Any Good?

ADDICTED TO FRESNO is a waste of Greer's talents; she tries her best but fails to rescue this woeful movie. At its center are its attempts to extract laughs from Shannon's awfulness and the mishap the sisters find themselves in, but viewers just aren't likely to buy it. The crime that drives the plot is too awful for words, and the tone is all over the place. Put simply, it's off-putting. Greer and Lyonne are a watchable pair -- in fact, they and the rest of the ensemble are probably the only reason anyone would watch this movie. But, sadly, there's nothing addictive here.
