.. but considering it was "just" a comedy, it actually surprised me how entertaining and funny it was. I saw it in German - sometimes the translation ruins the movie, sometimes it actually improves it. Considering all the negative comments on here, the latter may seem more likely. In my opinion, the lines were quite awesome, *really* funny and way above average. Then of course the movie was kind of playing with clichés about Americans. So I could imagine this is not considered to be funny in the US. If you don't mind, it's well worth watching!
