Dark comedy with modern twist
5 November 2019 | by ylawingSee all my reviews

I absolutely loved it! If you have watched Bob Byington movies before, Frances Ferguson really took the tone of dark comedy to next level. There were few interesting facts to this movie. 1. Local non actors and actress were used in this movie

2. Kaley Wheless really captured monotone expression of mandate life leads to drastic scandal event.

3. Narration by Nick Offerman and actor like David Klumholtz created super humorous awesome chemistries with cast members

4. If you watch more than once, every time you find more funny sayings so I will encourage you to watch this movie multiple times.

One of my favorite character is Fran's mother... Jennifer Prediger is the Bomb. And man, a tough Korean detective... she is kinda hot. Her Investigator partner Jack Marshal definitely had a good chemistry.
