I'd rather see a whole movie about an aging B-movie actor and forget about all the stuff with Tim Allen.

The movie makes smart use of the small-screen big-charm appeal of former Home Improvement star Tim Allen.

Very oddly plotted and thought out, but it has points that make you chuckle, and other points where you want to punch yourself in the face! Both ways are very… More
