The film was produced by Academy Award nominee Ivan Reitman (“Up in the Air”), Ali Bell (“Draft Day”), and Academy Award nominees Broderick Johnson and Andrew A. Kosove (“The Blindside”). Serving as executive producers were Tom Pollock, Scott Parish, Chris Cowles, Chris Fenton, and Timothy M. Bourne.

Glauberman (“Draft Day”), and two-time Oscar nominated costume designer Julie Weiss (“Frida,” “Twelve Monkeys”). The music was composed by Rob Simonsen (“Foxcatcher”).

    Terrible movie – comedies are getting worse and worse because of this woke bullshit push for political correctness which inevitably ends up in comedy becoming obvious and unfunny which this definitely was.

    They changed the name three times. Moved the release date twice only released it in 2 countries and expected it to do well. I was still calling it Bastards.
    Why make a movie to destroy it.
    At least bring it to Hulu or Netflix.
