Although this movie is entertaining and semi funny,(like my little pun I put in there?)it lacks any kind of evidence that anyone put thought into it... another Hollywood movie thats is wrecking Will Ferrell's reputation.
If your looking for a movie to watch when your mentally tired... this is the perfect pick. There is no thinking involved and you can summon enough energy to laugh at the jokes in it.
Andre Benjamin puts in a good performance - never once do you realize he's acting.
I did enjoy this movie - but I was severely disappointed when it came to my expectations of the movie.
Watch this movie when you have nothing better to do and you wont be disappointed.
