This must be the most excruciating 2 hours at the movies i've endured in a long time. I've seen my fair share of bad movies, but this one .. oh boy ..is shockingly bad.
This is from a studio that's historically churned out box-office smash hits, and has rarely, if not never, made less-than-stellar "moolah" off of its movies. So it's all the more perplexing that someone actually green-lit the finished product here.
This is a disney movie, after all. Let's break it up -
The story - has taken a break. Don't know where it is right now.
The actors - are wasted. Everything is cringe-worthy.
The colors - Well, that's all it has. Colors.
The script - i doubt if there was one. If there was one, it probably was proof-read by an high-on-lsd hippie.
The "moral" of the story - That's on a break too, along with the story.
Ava DuVernay's last movie, Selma, was good. It had a purpose. It had a story to tell.
This one, has no story. There is no reason for this movie to exist.
You can tell the audience is being taken for a ride, and has taken them for fools when a $100 million movie has simply laced Ms. Winfrey with ultra-tacky sparkly make-up that was bought at the last minute from the local grocery story, and expecting that the audience (kids and adults alike) will throng to watch it.
I shelled out $18 for this garbage (and i felt it was $18 too many). I suggest you don't.
At the risk of pulling your hair out, i suggest watching it when you have none left to worry about.
