Harry Dean Stanton,
When the Stupids set off to Warehouse 21, they leave when the sun is up. You see their car pass under a bridge with a sign reading "Warehouse 21 5 Miles" but when they arrive at the warehouse, it is the dead of night. See more »

Come on people! Relax. If you rate this movie a 1, you either are trying to hate it or don't have a sense of humor.
It's not high art, but the deadpan acting is spot on, and if you really look at it, the writing in this script is far more complex and well crafted than most "gross out" comedies people seem to applaud.
While other comedies just string together some non-sequeters, this one has a tightly woven throughline, with one line of dialogue or action not only leading to the next, but so integral to the story that if you were to remove a gag or a character, the house of cards would collapse.
It is theater of the absurd and farce at it a high level.
And it is telling that some people who say this is the worst movie ever also say the Kentucky Fried Movie was a "miss" despite that film being the first of it's kind and leading to hundreds of films since that these same people probably loved.
