An Average Comedy, 3 May 2010
Author: jplank1475 from United States

I would have given this movie a higher score if kept me laughing throughout the whole film. Don't misunderstand, there are HILARIOUS parts in this movie but as a whole, it deserves an average.

Will Arnet is amazing at being awkwardly hysterical, and I feel he really did his part. Will Forte though just didn't hold up his part of the deal I'm afraid.

One thing I thought was funny was how they are such horrible drivers, they may have hit five cars or so swerving around traffic and nobody said a thing about it. Something subtle like that really makes me laugh.

I must say though, the opening credits were the highlight of this movie. My sides were aching before the movie even started...but the rest of the movie just funny, not side splitting.

Worth a watch for sure
