Troy Miller is the director of Jack Frost and The Announcement. If neither of those titles seem to give any evidence of a pedigree that would land someone in Sundance, this one sure won’t either - and its inclusion at the festival is a bit of a head-scratcher. Low brow humor has its place, but aside for some fun cameos (Trey Parker, Matt Stone, Jeff Goldblum, etc.) and three laughs (there’s one particularly funny sketch that plays on the “gay conspiracy”), this was dumber than watching a Porky’s sequel sober.
