Hit and miss comedy, mostly miss
4 July 2015 | by (Tulsa, OK) – See all my reviews

This movie tries to be both a love triangle and a social commentary movie but fails in both attempts. While its chock full of Hollywood stars including some legends, the script is confusing and the settings and actions seem improbable and outright unbelievable. Marsden's comedic talents go untapped as the lovestruck highway patrol officer, Gyllenhall is what I expected...not very good and doesn't seem to have the knack for slapstick. Tracy Morgan is a typical black stereotype as he declares he isn't a black stereotype, and Kurt Fuller as the minister with a constant erection due to a visit with a quack doctor, well that idea just isn't funny. The only standouts are Paul Reubens as the smarmy aide to Rep. Pam Hendrickson, and the rather cute yet very politically militant girl scouts who take no prisoners when they realized they have been lied to about a Shakira appearance. It overall could have been much better but the script was just terrible, the jokes were not funny and there was just no way to save this movie in its present form.
