Irritating,bad comedy
25 August 2009 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

This movie starts with old,used jokes,staged as original elements of a crime-thriller-comedy.Used 100-years old characters,bad acting,dialogs like a 10 years old,but popular classmate trying he's skills at the movie makers tea party,after some movie history lesson.

But I'am happy the creators this time does not try harder,cause the basic material is not able to say something new.

Main character is not new,the creators know this,and this is why they can not focus to the character,and they create rather a shallow story around him,for me personally this is not a smart help,but if you are not interested in these serious things,maybe you will be entertained by this.

3/10
