Watched a little over half. I've never been a huge fan of Andre's style of surreal humor, and I can't say this film changed my opinion. I did think having a narrative to frame some of the 'pranks' was useful, though the story itself was far too contrived (perhaps purposefully?) to do anything but provide a respite between skits. Also, where's Hannibal Buress in this? Felt a bit weird to see him swapped for Lil Rel Howery, but perhaps it's related to his stepping away from The Eric Andre Show.
