It's too early to know who's winning the fight: the medicine or the disease.
Did anybody ever tell you, you have a very scary accent?
You are a very funny man. I enjoy your movies.
And I enjoy all of your movies.

If you like this idea, and like crude junior high 'comedy' this movie is for you. Not one likable character, a lot of messed up people feeling sorry for themselves. I sure hope the actors and director, and producers enjoyed their therapy; I did not enjoy being their victim. A big fat waste of time.
The 'comedy' was gross, the characters all self-absorbed whiners, the plot was predictable. If I would have engaged with the movie I probably would have needed therapy myself after this two and one hour tour of misery and crudity.
If you are miserable, and love company, maybe this movie is for you.
