I find that, more than any other movie genre, comedy is a matter of personal taste. One person can come whole-heartedly recommend a film to you as being eyeball-busting funny, only for you to sit there stoney-faced throughout.
This film perfectly illustrates that point. The user ratings and comments for this film have been pretty negative, but I've rarely laughed so much at a comedy. Yes, it's stupid and full of slapstick, but it has some great lines and the actors look like they're having fun.
And unlike other similar films, it's not just a star vehicle for a money-mad, unfunny rapper. If you're planning a night in with a few drinks or *whatever* and you "like this sort of thing", this is a good bet.
