I'm definitely not a Ashton Kutcher fan, and I'm rarely a fan of mainstream comedies. Yet somehow, I watched this film in its entirety, and found it to be surprisingly entertaining.
It is certainly not an especially sophisticated movie - from the plot description, you gather that Ashton's character has to housesit for his sadistic boss, and basically the entire movie is a ridiculous romp through every possible thing that could go wrong with such a simple task. The humor is crude, and will occasionally make you cringe in more ways than one. You're certainly not laughing with anyone in the movie, you laugh at them. The characters are composed with blatant flaws that keep the movie going, but do so in a fairly entertaining fashion, and there's enough plot to keep you interested enough that you actually kind of want to know what happens.
This movie isn't as bad as the voting seems to suggest, and if you're looking for a brainless comedy, this is a good choice. You won't be in awe of this film's greatness, but you will probably be entertained.
