Fart jokes? Check. Bowel jokes? You betcha. Toilet paper jokes? Covered. Fart noises? The best. Cockroaches/rats in kitchens? Sure, throw ‘em in. Actual humor? Uh…what’s that again?

Here’s a rumor for ya: this is pretty bland stuff, despite all the clever people involved and good intentions to pull off a hip dramedy. Ultimately, Rumor Has It doesn’t know what it wants to be.

Masquerading under the guise of an “inspirational story,” The Ringer hits a new low for Hollywood. Producers may have exploited their way into some (intentional, of course) controversy buzz, but don’t expect audiences to be fooled by this unfunny hoax of a comedy.
