I cannot recall when I last walked out of a movie, but with 15 - 20 minutes remaining I hit the bricks (as did other audience members). Speaking of Brick there was a palpable level of discomfort among the actors, who were keenly aware they had been tasked with making funny an exceptionally unfunny script. I gave a two star rating due to some of the music played in the film, aside from that there is nothing whatsoever to recommend this mess. There was an over-saturation of marketing and sneak previews of this movie which only compounded the unpleasant experience of watching it. Though I remain a fan of the original, I feel far less inclined towards patronizing future efforts from Ferrel and co.
