Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3):

This comedy is so not funny, it's hard to understand why it was even made. The unrelenting use of profanity or violence is supposed to somehow provoke laughter, but it just doesn't. Not even cameos from Fred Armisen and Andy Samberg can salvage things. As a "buddy" movie, as a raunchy comedy, as a dark comedy, as an action movie, it fails on every level.

The only remotely positive thing to say about Take the 10 is that the acting isn't half-bad. The actors do the best they can with what they have to work with, which isn't much. Possibilities and potential for real humor from and between the characters feels like it's almost there, but not enough time was devoted to exploring it. The end result is a comic misadventure lacking in both comedy and adventure.
