Gross Comedy Mixed with True Life Story

This movie had all the pieces in the right place of being a great True Life Story movie. An all star cast + the true life story line, however, this movie though interesting to watch, I wouldn't ever watch again, nor possibly even recommend. The humor placed in this movie was completely inappropriate. If you google this story, and read the timeline of events before even watching the movie, you'd be insulted. Secondly, the cover should have Mark Walhberg (Lugo) and Anthony Mackie (Doorbal) on the cover, since they were the prime killers, but for the sake of getting viewers attention, they put Dwayne Johnson. I'm more or less disturbed that this was made into a dark comedy, when the truth behind this story is far from humorous.

I enjoyed this this movie. It's not what you might think it is. It's funny but dark comedy funny, it seems far fetched but it's a true story.

The entire movie I was dumbfounded at how stupid people could sometimes be. I enjoyed that it was a true story and yes it had a few laughs but in the end you were just in awe.

This is the most boring, stupid movie I have ever seen. Poorly done is being too nice of a word to say. This movie stinks! We got our money back before leaving the theater!

The horror!

If this movie was fiction, I wouldn't be writing a review. It was funny, silly at times and what you'd expect from a Michael Bay movie (maybe entertaining?). The movie itself wasn't bad. What makes this movie horrible is that it is a true story. I liken it to watching a Dateline special about how a husband kidnaps his wife and kills her unborn baby, and then Michael Bay gets a hold of it and decides to make it sexy and fun. It's hard to be entertained at the expense of such sad events that affected so many people (despicable or not) and to feel any joy about such desperate and deprived acts. In theory, this should be a Go!, but real life horror as fun? No!
