I'm not a very picky viewer, especially at matinee prices but this movie really, really stunk. Only the second movie I ever thought about walking out of. The first was the Transporter. If you ever want to dump your girlfriend invite her over to watch these two back to back.
What a coincidence that two of the worst movies in history both star or co-star Tom Greene. The dialogue, plot, humor - all bad! You'd think that the casting folks would take a hint after Freddy created new splash heights in Hollywood's crapper. You get the feeling that the movie could have been good, I mean Jason Lee is usually great in everything I've seen him in, but then Tom Greene stepped in and said "Hey, these people haven't suffered enough - let's throw in a bunch of stuff that has no redeeming humor whatsoever. Trust me - I think it's funny, it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. Watch this - I'll talk to a lettuce leaf and pretend like it's my aunt. The less people think it's funny the cooler it is."
