I give it a ten because it's not a remake, cartoon, or film version of a lousy TV series, which is about all that is made anymore. No computer animation, no blood/gore, no breasts for the sake of breasts scenes, and hey, it's not the result of a 20 year old deciding to make a live action version of something like Scooby Doo. I was at the premiere and I don't recall being asked to fill out a questionnaire, though it's possible. There is no cheap humor here. I imagine it would appeal mainly to people over 30, or at least those who don't need the usual tired T&A jokes and graphics to laugh. All of the actors were quite funny, and I didn't see the jokes coming a mile away. Listening to people after the show, the worst I heard was that it had a bit of a slow start, but then was very good. That isn't exactly an insult either.
