Funny film with lots of heart
20 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of those movies that I caught on cable at like one in the morning. But to my surprise I actually loved it. It was very funny and very sweet. Paul Gross and Leslie Neilsen always play so well off each other, much like they did in Due South. The supporting cast, with the exception of Molly Parker, were really funny as well. She whined her way through the role. The script was filled with great one liners and amazing heart. The acting, particularly by the 3 leads, was good for the most part. They all seemed very comfortable with each other and you believed they were friends. Scenes like the beaver road block and Peter Outerbridge's sex scene with the biker made me laugh so hard. My family is from the Newfoundland area of Canada and to be honest I saw a lot of them in this movie. To those who have said this movie was awful and told others not to watch it, I disagree. If you are looking for a movie to make you laugh and has a lot of heart, I recommend this one.
