It’s rare that a movie that, on paper, had so much potential resulted in the mess that is Collateral Beauty.
For that, the upcoming Doug Benson Movie Interruption at Cinefamily at the end of the month should be an extra special one to attend.
Tickets are still available for $14 here.

Doug Benson Will Be a Small Claim Courts Judge in “The High Court” on Comedy Central
Doug Benson deciding on court cases was probably as much as had to be pitched for this to get sold, right?
