This has to rank as one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I kept waiting for it to get better but it never did. I'm wondering how a movie company could put out something like that. Christ, even Conan was better than this! My wife felt exactly the same way, when will this thing get funny??? It dragged right from the start. There were a couple funny bits but only about $0.79 worth. I really couldn't believe Steve Carell would make a piece of junk like this. This is the kind of movie I turn off when it airs on HBO (I am hoping that HBO has better taste than to show this). Describing this as awful is being nice, real nice. This movie was stupid gag after stupid gag that had my wife and I looking at each other asking if that was supposed to be funny. There were only a couple saps in the theater but you could hear the moans and groans. On the way out there were a lot of blank stares and "what the hell was that" comments. It's nice to know that we were not the only ones who were stupid enough to shell out eleven bucks each for this horrible attempt at comedy. I have seen commercials that had better content, a lot of them. Don't waste your money and don't waste your time when this hits TV.
