And you thought Hollywood couldn’t sink any lower for “inspiration” than video games. Every bit as contrived and unnecessary as you imagined, it’s aiming for light and silly but can’t shake a certain blackness at its heart. The only fun I had was witnessing the screenwriting contortions necessary to shoehorn all the smartphone app’s elements – giant slingshots, etc. – into a feature-length “plot.” Extra points if you guessed that anger management therapy is part of it. Among the squandered voice talent are Jason Sudekis, Maya Rudolph and Josh Gad. I hear “Address Book: The Movie” is in development. (97 min)
