Disappointing

Unfortunately the efforts of the cast are not enough to make up for a preposterous story and a bad script.

Shallow.

The acting is way too artificial, which makes many scenes cringeworthy to watch. Anyway the kicker is clearly the plot, whoever wrote it should try some deep reflection about their life choices. You should give it a shot, let's see how long you'll make it, before you turn it off.

Not Funny Enough For a Comedy That Relies Completely On the Leads

If you read the reviews on RT for this film, you'll notice that most of the positive ones come from critics who are recommending it solely because they like the leads. To be fair, I've recommended films before that were heavily flawed but I still found to be enjoyable enough due to the leads. I think the two leads are both very talented, but I don't agree with the critics who are doing it with this film.

It has become rather common for critics to disregard significant flaws and still recommend films essentially just because they promote diversity or another form of political correctness, which I find to be pandering and problematic. This film was suppose to get a wide theatrical release and I'm glad major studios have begun picking up more films with diverse leads, but those films still should be analyzed just like any other and the leads not being white shouldn't cause it to receive bonus points that ultimately nudge it positive, when the review would otherwise be ultimately negative.

I like the leads, but their charisma and charm wasn't enough to compensate for the fact that there's nothing else here. The murder mystery aspect felt very carelessly written (especially its conclusion), and there's nothing clever about the sequence of events that the characters go through. There also isn't much characterization. The film relies completely on the leads and them being funny, and although they're likable, it features scattered small laughs at best.

I'm usually not against films being shorter, but the beginning felt very rushed. The characters and their relationship could have used a lot more development before throwing them into the murder mystery. Ultimately clocking out at not even an hour and a half, the film abruptly ends with you feeling like nothing memorable ever happened.

I also really didn't appreciate the multiple times that characters were called rapists solely due to being in a fraternity. Not everyone in a frat is a rapist and films shouldn't make jokes that reinforce that assumption.
