JACK BLACK AND JAMES MARSDEN IN THE D TRAIN
|2015 rating: *1/2|
After a dry set-up involving Black seeking Marsden in Los Angeles when he’s supposed to be on a business trip leads a shocking twist that’s buried in the promotion for two reasons: it might take away from those yearning for Jack to regain the zany reins from the Zach Galifianakis and Josh Gad types who stole his funny fat guy thunder years ago; and anyone who actually paid to see a comedy might want to hold on to their cash, or waste it on this weekend's other buddy flick, HOT PURSUIT.
The overall execution of what we do get from THE D TRAIN is awkward, slow-paced, and buries a vacant plot that suffers a bigger identity crisis than the dull main character.
