Evan: You know what he's doing now? He's probably in the back of that limo, giving himself a blow job.
Joan: What?
Evan: Oh, yeah. He can blow himself. He's double-jointed.

Only thing missing is a laugh track ......
19 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This plays like an extended sitcom, with the only thing missing being a laugh track. The entire movie seems stretched with non relevant material, such as the missing bag of cookies, or the elevator rudeness. There are a few chuckles along the way to the rather dark conclusion. Neither Steven Weber or Craig Bierko elicits any sympathy, so you wind up really not caring who gets a leg up on whom. Both girlfriends and the Mother are nothing but annoyances. The whole script beyond the initial idea of the slot machine sequence, seems like forced outrageousness. At best, a rather mediocre film that belongs on television, and nothing more. - MERK
