Chris Pine reflects on directorial debut Poolman being 'obliterated' by critics

The Star Trek actor stars alongside Annette Bening and Danny DeVito in his first feature, which follows a pool cleaner in Los Angeles who uncovers a water heist. Critics were not kind to Poolman following its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September, with some calling it "disastrous" and "a misfire". Pine acknowledged the negative reception to his movie on this week's Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard podcast. "When the film came out at Toronto it was f**king obliterated. I didn't read any of the reviews but I heard that they were pretty mean," he said.
