Like Ike Barinholtz’s Chris, Swear off The Oath.

I forgot to write a review for this movie and now it’s more than three months later and things are hazy, but I can tell you that there are some funny parts of this, but also that tonally it’s off.* It may that it’s a Too Soon! movie** or that Barinholtz just wants to push buttons that I wasn’t in the mood to have pushed, but I could see people putting in their best effort, but it just didn’t come together. It was interesting to see Haddish play the straight man, so there was that.
The verdict: Skip
Cost: Monthly Disney+/Hulu charge ($8.99)
Where watched: at home
Consider watching instead:
*Like it’s a dark comedy, but I think a little too dark?
**We did watch it three days after the storming of the capital by domestic terrorists.
- What’s your favorite kind of movie for Tiffany Haddish to star in?
- Would you take the oath?
