The Stand In

Rating: 0.5 out of 5.

You’re pissing on a child.

Drew Barrymore falls flat on her face. Twice. With a poor script and seemingly non-existent direction, I hoped that Drew could carry the film with at least one of her two roles. She did not. Not only was her performance terrible, but her most notable co-star, T.J. Miller, was completely misused. Despite his natural abilities, his character was unbelievably flat, not unlike his hair which is usually curly and volumius.

This should in no way be considered a comedy. Not only were there very few jokes actually written into the script, but there wasn’t a lot funny about the film at all. It was a genreless disaster that will go down as one of, if not the worst performance of Drew’s career.
