New Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg Netflix film gives both actors worst Rotten Tomatoes score of their careers
| Last updated
Me Time landed on Netflix last week and it’s fair to say that it hasn’t exactly pulled in rave reviews, in fact, it’s been so poorly received that it's quickly given its two lead stars their lowest ever rating on the review aggregator site.
In case you’ve not seen it, Me Time centres on stay-at-home dad Sonny (played by Hart) who finds himself with free time - or ‘me time’, if you prefer - while his wife and kids are away.
With the extra time on his hands, Sonny catches up with his old, hard-partying pal Huck (played by Wahlberg) for a wild weekend.
Alongside Hart and Wahlberg, the movie also stars Regina Hall, Jimmy O. Yang, and John Amos.
Despite its decent cast, the movie has failed to impress and has just six percent on Rotten Tomatoes' critic score and 29 percent for its audience score. It doesn’t fare much better on IMDB either, where it has just five out of 10.
Critics have largely slated the film, with Empire Magazine writing: “Me Time takes an interesting family dynamic and hides it under crass jokes and hackneyed stunts.”
And The Hollywood Reporter commented: “The two stars have earned considerable good will from audiences over the course of their hugely successful careers. But that affection is likely to be tested with too many sub-par comic efforts.” Ouch.
While on Twitter, it’s also been hit with a slew of negative posts from viewers, with one calling it a 'let down'.
One person wrote: “I think Me Time on Netflix maybe the worst movie I’ve seen all year.”
Another said: “Me Time heavily advertised on Netflix. Mark Wahlberg and Kevin Hart. Thought for sure this would be a classic. Quite the opposite, what a let down. Waste of 2 hours.. annoyed.”
And someone else commented: “Me Time on Netflix was pretty awful.”
Nonetheless, Me Time debuted on the streaming service as the second most watched title - beaten only by the new series Echoes - and was the most watched movie, racking up 59.2 million hours watched in its first three days on Netflix.
If you fancy finding out what it's like for yourself, then Me Time is streaming on Netflix now.
