It’s alarming that “The Art of Self-Defense” isn’t as shocking as you’d think, which perhaps says it all.
This is a movie with an abundance of mediocrity, from the ludicrous plot to the hackish directing.
This film feels fake, inauthentic, unoriginal, and doesn’t seem to come from a place of sincerity.
A sunny, family-friendly adventure that will appeal to most kids and tweens.
A very funny, touching, and poignant film that explores what happens when an artist stops creating.
Sloppy, indifferent, unfunny, and charmless. Having kids spew profanity is not an acceptable substitute for humor.
