Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (9 ):
Kids say (34 ):

Those who aren't already among the Smosh guys' millions of fans will likely wonder what makes them such a popular YouTube sensation. They have a Millennial Dumb and Dumber/slacker shtick that's funny for a second and then quickly grows tedious. Several of the supporting characters are themselves famous YouTube personalities -- like Jenna Marbles, Shane Dawson, Grace Helbig, Harley Morenstein, Mark Fischbach ("Markiplier"), and Dominic "D-Trix" Sandoval. If these names mean nothing to you, this probably isn't a movie worth seeing. But if YouTubers are your (or your kid's) jam, you may delight in seeing your favorite Internet celebs in a new format.

Billed as a Bill & Ted for the next generation, Smosh doesn't take into consideration that while these guys are probably hilarious in digital shorts, carrying a movie (usually) requires actual acting skills, which these two don't seem up to the task of mastering. If Hollywood was looking for a movie that truly elevates web celebs to the status of pulling off a feature-length film, this isn't it. But for viewers who count themselves among Smosh's legion of fans, it's sure to be an enjoyable endeavor others won't understand.
