"I didn't find this movie particularly funny the first time I saw it, but after having seen it a couple of more times, I now love it".
"It's one of those movies you just have to see a few times to "get", at least for me"
"This is one of those movies you have to see a few times to get it! That's probably why some of you found it unfunny. I didn't think it was funny either when I first saw it, but then after seeing it (by chance) on cable again, I found myself laughing! And yes, I agree with what someone said earlier, although it may seem like silly humor, there is an actual intelligence about it that makes it even more enjoyable!"
It is a quaint little comedy, very laid back. I went with lots of expectations and i hated the movie too at the start as well as my friends. We felt the jokes were very far and few between. It was just not explosive at all. However being Jack Black fans we watched it again by chance and surprisingly, it is now one of the most charming movie i know. It gives me hope to run after my dreams. How do you handle that. Very laid back but it actually inspires you. Seems dull but has the most lovely soundtrack. Even a bit romantic too.
People who rushes through movies as if they are walking on a city street wont like it. But someone who takes time as if they are walking on the countryside will appreciate its slowness. Its a little sad and sweet but at the same time hilarious too. Something very interesting is i laughed more when saw it the second time, then more the third time and now I love this movie.
People are time and again reminded to kill expectations when they watch a movie but even after they try, unconsciously they bring this baggage along. So its a bummer. Happened with me when i watched this movie too. What happened when I watched this again is -my expectations were automatically set that I knew it is going to be a laid back, slow entertainer. Thats how i am enjoying it and i don't watch it on busy days or so called "weekends" when you want to have fun. I would love to watch it rather on lazy Sundays with few close people and be charmed.
