Jerry (Ryan Reynolds) is a chipper worker at a bathtub factory who is trying to win the love of his life with his evil talking pets.

★★★★★

Ryan Reynolds’ first movie since R. I. P. D. will surely be one of 2015’s oddest. He’s a hyper-chipper worker at a bathtub factory, who also happens to be a budding serial killer. And he likes to chat with his pets.

The exact mid-point between Dr. Dolittle and Dr. Lecter, it’s tonally wonky and not as funny as was perhaps intended. But the underrated Reynolds launches a full-force attack on his role (or roles; he also voices the cat and dog), and there are staggering stylised moments, including famous heads in a fridge and a climactic musical number.

Full-force performance form Ryan Reynolds but not as funny as it hopes it is.
