It certainly doesn't deserve the blacklash, but it definitely doesn't deserve the praise it's getting by some either.
I thought this movie was incredibly average at best. It had almost no direction and no focus. It didn't really go anywhere. Just a movie that exists for the sake of existing. Kudos to Smith for venturing out of his comfort zone especially after a terrible movie like Cop Out, but this movie was just a big "meh" for me.
