A family calls in an intervention for Benjamin, a kid who is doing drugs. Soon, it becomes clear that those who are confronting Benjamin’s problem also have many problems of their own.
Motion Picture Rating (MPAA)
Rated R for some drug and sexual material
There’s a good cast in this Redbox exclusive “comedy” but the movie itself was really awful, in my opinion. It tries to be shocking but all we get is a mean-spirited, crude, and cringe inducing film, as family and friends gather for an intervention for the youngest clan member Benjamin’s (Max Burkholder) suspected drug use. Well, I don’t have to tell you, things will not go according to plan. The only glimmer of humor came from David Hull as the character Robby.
Overall, I couldn’t wait for this one to be over. I might add it’s positive that Redbox is bringing out their own films but future efforts have to be better than this one.
