One review

  • This was a fun movie, the kids enjoyed it, the wife mostly enjoyed it, I almost enjoyed it. Except for one thing. This otherwise fantastic movie was ruined by the worst soundtrack I’ve ever heard in a movie. I can only assume this otherwise wonderful movie was nearly completely destroyed by Rihanna’s insistence that the studio pay for the rights to her entire catalog. There’s no other explanation. The songs never seem to match with the movie.

    The soundtrack is vital to any movie. Don’t think the soundtrack can make or break a movie? Watch Donnie Darko and imagine they replaced every song with some Rihanna track. Yeah, sacrilege. And that is what happens in this otherwise enjoyable family comedy.

    Seriously, this movie would be a strong 8 or 9 if they had a halfway decent soundtrack that matched in any way the action on screen.

    Jim Parson’s Boov Death Song, however, was fantastic.

    If you love you some completely out of place pop music playing throughout the entire movie for no reason, then this is a perfect movie for you. I can only lament at what could have been if someone had the backbone to stand up and say, “Not every song needs to be a Rihanna song! End the madness!”
