Not very funny
11 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is along the lines of Kentucky Fried Movie. It's a series of comedy sketches.

The writing is simply not funny.

For example, there was a segment involving etiquette in the bedroom. Now that was a potentially funny concept. But they failed completely to come up with anything original or even funny.

Another sketch was about encouraging black athletes to "associate with" black women as black athletes skills were supposedly going down by having children with white women.

The movie is filled with unfunny stereotypical driven humor. Now they seem to be going out of their way to attempt to make fun of stereotypes in many segments, such as a segment about a gay mafia. And fail.

This movie is an unfunny as the last unfunny comedy I saw, Epic movie.

Comedy is hard to do. It's very easy to fail to be funny. And this movie easily manages to not be funny.

The only segment that was kind of funny was the scene where the DVD was on trial and DVR was called as a witness.

The quality of the actors seemed good in many cases, actually. So I blame the writing completely.

Now, maybe some people under 20 under chemical influence might find this funny. But I would think they could find much funnier movies.
