Probably the worst movie i've seen this year
15 February 2007 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

This movie is AWFUL.

The lead role is of an infantile grown man, the kind you'd want to punch in the face if he'll cross your way. And the worst part is - he doesn't change. Well sure, he learns not to fear being a father, but who the hell cares? This is the most annoying character i've seen in movie history. There's no bright side to him, he's just super annoying. Like that kid you hate, but grown up.

The other actors are doing a mediocre job, except for Ted's dad, who's pretty good. The writing is just awful, one cliché after another, people are saying what they are feeling all the time ("I am so pleased!", "I am afraid", "I'm so excited") and the plot doesn't even exist.

This is what happens when you write a movie and cast yourself in the leading role without any experience or anything new to say. You get the worst film in years. I truly understand why the writer and leading actor is also the producer of this crap - nobody in their right mind will pay to make this horrible movie.

Do yourself a favor and watch paint dry. Please.
