    Wow, bit provocative? I'm all for challenging the established tropes in films but come on, don't make it out like all white people are involved in some evil plot and don't recognise the problem.

    The name of this gives you the wrong impression.......... although I suppose it's supposed to do that.

    As someone else said going by the advert, it doesn't look funny. Bad acting.

    That was my first impression too, but it's evident from the full trailer (below) that this film is not about white bashing. Among other things, I think it might be satirising the extreme social justice warrior position. This might be interesting.
