This comedy of errors about a film production (of the super-cheesy ‘Cliff Beasts 6’) during the early days of the COVID lockdown is heavy on the errors and unfortunately light on the comedy. Written and directed by Judd Apatow, the film does have intermittent spots of fresh, hit-your-mark laughs, but they’re overshadowed by a lot of groaners and clunkers. Karen Gillan and Keegan-Michael Key star as actors in the film-within-a-film, and though they can individually make a phone book funny, there’s simply not enough here for them to work with to make this any kind of success.

2.5/5 stars
