Lost on the Wacky Island, Lost in the Wacky Scripting
Now this is the kind of film I watched without any idea of what I'd watch. It's basically the story of 4 business men on a "team building" weekend, where they set off to a remote island and end up being stuck on it. Soon all the hidden stories and rivalries start appearing...
That's a fairly good set, especially with low life businessmen working for a sparkling water company. Yet it fails to deliver.
All characters, albeit pretty funny are always depicted as somewhat moronic and quite honestly, I missed the writer's love for his own characters. Hence, you come up with a film that leaves you fairly not satisfied with the character development...
Being obviously subjective, I will take the imdb rating (5 being nothing special) and give it a 6. It definitely could have ranked higher, had the script be more subtle and generous.
