They've been having massive layoffs, closing some of their offices, and they sold their main campus back to the bank and are currently renting it from SunTrust.

They can't keep having "semi" hits bookended by flops. Wall Street likes to see consistent returns and their revenue fluctuates wildly depending on the film. And they've had floor flops and write downs than hits recently.

giant catalog of old TV shows and character properties (Casper the Friendly Ghost, Rocky and Bullwinkle, Fat Albert, etc) with the hopes of both making a TV network and making new movies based on those old characters.

Neither plan worked. No cable operators would buy the proposed DreamWorks Channel (and Byron Allen thought he had troubles), and we all saw what happened with their first film featuring their new stable of classic characters, "Mr. Peabody and Sherman", fared at the box office.

Everyone was especially skeptical because one of the leads was a little Black girl and you "know" you "can't" do that.

I read a review that made it sound like it as a plethora of scenes akin to the "gay panic" scenes from Hot Tub Time Machine and Boat Trip as if the writing and script were beneath Hart and Ferrell.

Seems like it had possibilities but ended up as forgetable crap

12771337, I coulda told you it was beneath both of them from the trailer

It looks like something written for less established comic actors that someone at Warner Bros. read and loved so much that they went and got top-tier comic actors to star in it.

Just looked it up, apparently it's co-written by one of the writers of "Key & Peele". Maybe a four-minute sketch version of this with both leads being black (the concept as filmed will never-not be eyebrow-raising to me) could be funnier.
