One of the worst movies I’ve ever seen. I cannot get my 2 hours back. Dumb. Stupid. Do not waste your money. Was it a supposed to be a comedy, drama or mystery? They hit the marks on all parts. I’m still trying to process the stupidity.

I take no vicious pleasure in saying that Poolman, a movie that Pine co-wrote, directed, and stars in, is not only the worst film I saw during the fall festival season but would likely be one of the worst films in any year it came out.

Poolman is an unfunny spoof of neo-noir thrillers with hazy direction, even messier storytelling, and unbearable dialogue.

While Pine is undeniably a charismatic actor, that likability can only generate so much audience good will in a production overstuffed with cartoonish caricatures lacking any sort of deeper connective tissue.
