Awful movie!

I thought this movie was awful from the start! The language was SO BAD, I turned it off 10 minutes into it! The “F” word was dropped about 12 times or more from the start! I never even got to see Robin Williams. It could have gotten better, but if there is language like this in a movie. I won’t even give it a chance sorry! Robin Williams is a great actor, but he’s best when he’s funny!
