Will Ferrell adds nothing new to this movie, nothing we haven't seen before in his other movies and at some point it just felt like I was watching a movie I had already seen before. I did find myself laughing at several parts of the film, but this is not a movie which I will be wanting to watch again unlike some of his past films. The high point of the film was in the scene where they were all shooting an apparently empty gun at one another. I have to admit I laughed pretty hard in that scene and in a couple more moments. Will Ferrell always manages to get a couple of laughs out of me, but this movie was just too dumb and stupid ( well most of his films are and that is what makes them funny, but this was just a little too repetitive). Woody Harrelson and Andre Benjamin were pretty funny and it was good to see them working with Ferrell. The problem is that Wills character seems to be very similar in all his movies and there is a lack of originality that begins shortening the laughs. There were also very few memorable quotes in this film unlike in his other movies.
