FULL REVIEW: CONTAINS SPOILERS
The Little Hours is an okay, sometimes funny historical comedy that attempts to follow in the footsteps of other successful parodies before it. While its cinematography and performances do help push it in the right direction, the underdeveloped characters and nonsensical story make it a little too much for everyone’s enjoyment.
