Is It Any Good?
This movie based on the stars' popular YouTube channel is vile. Even people who like pranks may find that these repulsive, hateful, insulting, and often racist acts go too far. Most of the unimaginative, juvenile pranks in Natural Born Pranksters involve sex and/or bodily fluids, and there's some bullying. Occasionally, they also veer into truly offensive territory, particularly in the sequence in which they try to convince diners that a Chinese restaurant is killing dogs to serve as food and in another sequence in which they try to convince a white man that his pregnant Asian wife has given birth to a Black baby.
Normally, if a prank is funny, the victim might smile or laugh, but many of the reactions here are the opposite. One man simply yells, "Why?! Why?!" Another guest prankster hugs the victim and says, "I'm sorry." One man simply stares and stares, seemingly in shock, as if he can't believe the depths of depravity that have been unleashed upon him. One prankster actually pranks his mother; she responds by calling him an "a--hole." Some victims seem to express relief after their torture is over, but it's nothing that could be called funny. There's little else to be said about Natural Born Pranksters other than: Stay as far away from it as possible.
