meh... failed attempt at anti-PC'ness
24 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have no problems with vulgar, insulting, or racist humor so it's not like this movie shocked me or it ever offended me.... It simply wasn't funny.

I can almost see the writers sitting in a room convincing each other their lame skits were hilarious or controversial. The only thing I found remotely humorous was "The most offensive song ever written" skit. I got a snicker or two out of it.

I recognized a couple actors in it. Mostly either from old movies like the guy from Airplane or the other guy from Star Trek Voyager, but don't let the fact you might recognize their names as a reason to watch it. I'm sure their embarrassed by it, and it was strictly a paycheck.

I also saw this had an estimated budget of $1,000,000. Either someone stole $950,000 of that money, or it was someones tax write off cause it obviously didn't go towards the writing, directing or acting.

Unless you have this or an informercial to pick between for something to watch. I'd say pick this.... depending on what the infomercial is.
