New Flix: Yoga Hosers

I've liked Kevin Smith Films since I was very young, but he doesn't always make it easy.  Case in point...
In Canada, two Teens (Kevin Smith's Daughter and Johnny Depp's Daughter, right to left) are wannabe Singers and Convenience Store Workers.
Meanwhile, random people are being killed by...something.
Even though they are minor Celebrities (due to Tusk), they still live with their Parents.  In this case, quite literally...
One night, they are stuck at work when the strange menace from earlier rears its...odd head.

Was this really worth shaving your beard off, Kevin?  Was it really?
It all has to do with Canadian Nazis...led by the kid from A.I.  In present day, they are Sausage Men.
Can our Heroes (teamed up with Depp, for no good reason) win the day?  Can they do it without their phones?  To find out, watch the Film.
I wanted to like it.  Kevin Smith has always had an odd and quirky sense of Humor.  Not to make him feel old, but I grew up watching his stuff.  Seeing Clerks as a Teenager is still a strong memory, as is sticking with his later works like Mallrats and Dogma.  Despite all of the outside stuff that affected, Jersey Girl is still a pretty good Film, as is Zack and Miri Make a Porno.  I like stuff like Clerks 2 and Red State too, even if I'm kind of torn on Tusk and his part in Holidays.  The problem with Yoga Hosers as it feels like an odd vanity project and isn't quite good enough to overcome that.  The whole thing is a family affair- since it features him, his wife, his Daughter, Depp, Depp's ex-Wife, Depp's Daughter and Jason Mewes- and that sure is nice.  Like with Tusk, this is a mix of Horror and really-dumb Comedy.  There are good moments of both.  In the Film's defense, it is less jarring in how it handles the Horror elements.  The problem- it is all just so damn silly.  Relentlessly-silly at that!  I didn't hate it, but I definitely didn't laugh all that much.  You can do better than this.  So who did she spawn to get a Speaking Role in this Film?
Not the death of Comedy as many people have called it...but not particularly-good either.  I know that you can do better, Kevin.
