Whilst the majority of jokes misfire and the overall experience is potentially distasteful to many viewers, there was still a few laughs to be found in this offbeat, economical sketch comedy. Shaffir's tongue in cheek racist vignettes are the rare highlights, though clearly some aspects are in poor taste. Of Shaffir's segments, his bigoted driving instructor giving SE Asian drivers a hard time is possibly the comic zenith.
By contrast, Adrien Brody's Dirty Harry inspired sketches are the embarrassing nadir; ditto Rob Schneider's bombs. Cringe-worthy, and not in a good way. Lindsay Lohan, though top-billed really only occupies a small, inconsequential cameo parodying Marilyn Monroe.
If there was a sophisticated, satirical undertone intended, it didn't surface at any stage during my viewing though it's possible I may have missed the point entirely and in fact, this is a work of genius. It's also possible this is just an abject failure. Reckon your moral compass might determine whether you like or loathe.
