This was a funny movie
4 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was sitting about two thirds of the way back, on the right side. Occasionally something happened that made the sound go weird, but I really liked this movie. It wasn't like everything else you see out there, and I give it a lot of credit for that. I liked how they brought the two couples in and out a lot, and I think they could have used them even more. The Dan Marino thing was hilarious, and I liked the bits with the repair guy. And the thing about the fictional baseball player, I always liked running gags like that.

It was fun to see a movie that didn't do things the usual way. I get tired of these cookie- cutter formula deals. I'm not saying everything worked, because not all the jokes came off the way they probably wanted them to. But the majority of the scenes were really good.

I didn't know a lot about Dave Barry but after this movie I am definitely a fan. I was grinning the whole way through it and laughing out loud more than once.
