Despite it being a short, not a whole lot of stuff to keep any interest.

I've always found that "not bad" is faint praise. Such as, "Hey, Fred. I notice you're buying 'day old' hot dog buns there... How are they?" "Not bad."

See what I mean?

But "not that great" is completely different. Usually, one says something like, "Yesterday, I test drove a Testarossa. While it was fast, I found the handling not that great." Meaning that maybe the superlatives weren't warranted...

Either way, I think that the current idiom is "meh".

Bombing a section with no tumbles makes for a notbad moment. Good cheeseburgers can get that kinda praise.

OH, just watched the movie trailer. SICK, NOTBAD!

Watched the trailer too. Hmmm . . . hope they didn't overuse the super-slo-mo in the film.
