i really can't believe the amount of people who enjoy this movie. i saw it to relax before the new year eve's craziness, i wanted to see something funny and i thought: "paul rudd, steve carell, some guys from the daily show, it must be funny"... but well, i knew that i was wrong as soon as the first carell scene, that was just annoying... i have to recognize that i'm not a carell fan, even liking the office, i find that his humor in movies is too childish, disneysh, and in this one is so painful to watch, and is all because the obnoxious character that carell plays and the childish humor that creates.
besides, the combo of rational guy vs. dumb guy, classic humorous dynamic, in this movie doesn't work, because the idiot is too annoying and unlikable so when the normal guy don't kill him it just looks forced.
for the other hand, there's a couple of good characters. keiran, who is a completely unoriginal stereotype of an artist, but the guy was funny, so was the blind guy at the end... and that's all. nothing more works in this bad written piece of junk... and i can assure you all that i really wanted to like this, i wanted to spend a good afternoon with a funny movie, but is just impossible to laugh at this painful experience, i have to ask for forgiveness of my brother, whom i invited. it was terrible!... and very insulting, is like trying to make an adult laugh by shaking some car keys in front of his face... awful.
