Comment by Dr. Loomis

There you have it the Cinema Releases March 24 2017. I remember the TV show Chips and the film of the same name out this week is nothing like it. I really can’t believe they make this tosh, it looks absolutely terrible.

It’s the same poorly written conveyor belt comedies that big film studios seen intent on inflicting on audiences. Clearly most people are looking for something vaguely clever and funny. They used to make outstanding comedies like Planes, Trains and Automobiles what happened to those?

Come Hollywood you need to do a lot better, your audiences deserve it.
