Nobody’s Fool isn’t funny, isn’t clever, far, far too long and offensively irritating, putting out a cacophony of crap, with no direction and a mission to seek and annoy
The mindless rubbish Nobody’s Fool is obsessed with promoting is genuinely ridiculous. A near two-hour long comedy with the only jokes coming from Tiffany Haddish’s tone of voice and her incredibly in-your-face persona, leaves a very dry taste in the mouth, and a very agitated critic squirming in his seat.
Danica (Tika Sumpter) is an out of love professional, trying to make her way in life. Keeping up a long distance relationship with a man she’s never met, newly paroled sister Tanya (Tiffany Haddish) is convinced she is being catfished. Desperate to find out the truth, Tanya invites the Catfish television crew to their apartment, opening a very large proverbial can of worms.
The one thing, if nothing else, to be taken from Nobody’s Fool, is that it’s now clear what happens when Tiffany Haddish is left to her own devices. When she is given no direction, Haddish becomes unwatchable. Her awful attempts to be ‘comedic’ aren’t reigned in at all, and she’s a live wire on a normal day. This leaves a very unbalanced film with few strengths and many, many annoyances.
The story line following Tika Sumpter’s character becomes an entitled look at how to drastically mistreat men, and promotes a terrible attitude towards people who have made mistakes in their past. The tone is judged completely wrong, leaving behind an unhelpful and offensive plot line.
Nobody’s Fool isn’t funny, isn’t clever, far, far too long and offensively irritating, putting out a cacophony of crap, with no direction and a mission to seek and annoy. It’s terribleness can’t be underestimated, but it also doesn’t supply any reasons to suggest it should be. Nobody’s Fool is an awful attempt at modern comedy, and wildly misjudged for a modern audience.
