Even though this movie features some of the grand talents in today's comedy - Carell, Galifianakis and to the lesser extent Rudd - it is an utter disaster. The jokes are unfunny, the plot is atrocious, the dialogs are cheesy or/and stupid to the point of absurdity, the finale is typical of a Hollywood "blockbuster" - everything turns out great for the main characters and we're not even sure why because the plot is so unconvincing and poor. Even the gags by Carell and Galifianakis, some of which are even amusing, cannot save this tragedy. The only proper thing I could spot is the acting. And I mean proper since most of the employed names are trained actors therefore one cannot see any faults in that department but on the other hand observes average acting without any spectacular attempts. 3 out of 10 is one of the lowest ratings I had ever given a movie and hence the review.
