…lackluster …self-consciously “quirky” comedy that repeatedly pats itself on the back for being about nothing at all… evidently is supposed to elicit robust rounds of laughter because it sits in neutral while the audience prays (ultimately in vain) for it to start moving. …contains bad language, talk of sex, drug use, drinking and teens breaking things. And nothing else.
—Paul Tatara, CNN
