Considering the relative lack of rumors, expected lousy reviews (17% and 3.6/10 on Rotten Tomatoes), an unstarred cast, and a grueling season of competition, this is far from a barnburner. Even so, it’s a moral victory. The film received a C+ from Cinemascore.

I earned it. This points the release of Focus Features towards his million dollar weekend.
