Adult Beginners (2015)
Starring Nick Kroll, Rose Byrne, and Bobby Cannavale
Directed by Ross Katz
Ultimately, the biggest issue with Adult Beginners is that it just isn't funny. I can live the clichés and the stereotypes in the script as long as there's some kind of humor or charisma or charm to keep me hooked into the story, but none of that really exists here. I've certainly seen better work from Byrne and Cannavale before and Kroll is not nearly captivating enough as an actor to have a film be centered around him particularly if he's playing the kind of blowhard guy he's playing here.
