Review

Our Rating: Negative (Acquired Taste)

On The Fence

It’s Ridiculous To The Point Of Being Divisive

Consider “Girls Night In,” the type of horror that isn’t for everyone. Its humor feels very specific, it becomes eye roll-worthy level ridiculous towards the end, and you don’t really get invested in whether its leads live or die. Well, unless you find their humor appealing but, again, a lot of what is given is subjective to the point of feeling this is more in line with the satire of the Wayans Brothers rip-offs than the classics they produced as a family.
