It was mildly watchable, but i believe it could'v been so much better and a huge Hit if David O. Russell slapped the writers on the wrist once and while :P
So i was lost a couple times in the movie, where i found some scenes just kinda unnecessary, The idea of the movie is fine ,, i don't know .. i think it's all about the health insurance !! anyway ,, the movie has an okay plot but it was so predictable :P
The screenplay was just mild ,, i really expected the script to be full of comedy ,, laughs .. but it was full of naive scenes ,, For me it was like a couple of giggles and that's it .
Most of the characters have embraced this dorky personality in here with sure a villain character who tries to sabotage the simple dorky people's plans ,, so it was sorta average bid to follow the "dumb and dumber" style !!
As for the cast ,, i mean if it were to me i would use these WOWing set of actors to make a huge A** movie .., instead they made this average size one :P
i mean you got Jessica Biel, Jake Gyllenhaal, James Marsden, Tracy Morgan, Kurt Fuller and Bill Hader !!!!! they're all F..ing Geniuses in comedy .. and again i say the story in general was nice as a "watchable" movie but come one writers !! what the hell .. i think it's the lack of experience for Kristin Gore, its a really nice try and he's young but i think a well known director like David O. Russell should have known better.
Overall,, i watched it and it's over and i was not satisfied and even a bit disappointed, cuz the trailer was like bang.. comedy here,, comedy there .. so my rating is 4.6 ;) and you can round it to 5 :D
