    Tedious. Starts BAD and does improve - but Tatum and Bullock's bickering is grating and incessant. They have no chemistry and their banter is like nails on a chalk board. Brad Pitt gets some laughs and Radcliffe is better than the material but it's Oscar Nuñez who makes the biggest, most favorable impression in his small, weird role. Da'Vine Joy Randolph? Not funny. I can't forget it fast enough.

Perhaps a little too pat of a conclusion (and featuring one seriously fake looking boulder) but this is big ideas on a budget and I really appreciated it. Can't wait to see what Benson and Moorhead do next.

    The first half an hour of this provided some good, solid laughs.

But as the film goes on, and the story shifts focus almost exclusively to the main characters, it's diminishing returns after diminishing returns. By the end, I couldn't care less what happened. Dan Harmon's character was funny - but…
