Reject the hype
8 August 2012 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

Not really surprised to see all the negative comments on here. It happens all the time.. bunch of no brain sheep read a few "Professional" reviews and feel qualified to jump on the critical bandwagon. But their writing is too gay to be published anywhere else, so they lay it down here.

This movie is pretty damn hilarious. Yes its completely over the top, and yes its completely tasteless, but it makes zero pretense about this from the get-go.

I encourage you to see this film if you don't take yourself too seriously, have a couple of like-minded buddies to watch it with, and are a fan of south park, the heartbreak kid, super bad etc etc

Reject the hype, these guys are idiots
