Amazing satire comedy

This film is amazing to watch with your family as it is extremely funny and will give you all a good laugh. A lot of people dislike this film but I think that is because they lack the ability to understand this type of comedy. Obviously not every film can be for everyone but this film is definitely for most people . If I could recommend any movie to anyone I would recommend this, it is funny, it is inspirational, it is class.

Worst movie ever

This is by far one of the worst movies I have ever see. The way everything looked made it look like something a group of people made and not done by an actual studio. It was unfunny,terrible acting, had wired uncomfortable scenes and I especially hated the scene where it was referencing avatar because that is a very good movie and is 100 times better than this train wreck. Stopped watching because of how bad it was and watched avatar instead and enjoyed that a lot better but don’t waste time with this dollar store version of the hunger games
