this was supposed to be a COMEDY?

well the joke's on you, because that's an hour and a half of your life you'll never get back.

the funniest thing about this movie was our commentary, which is saying something since i was sitting in stunned silence at how ridiculously un-comedic this is. don't watch this if you want to be any happier. it's not going to happen.

if this was described as a drama, docudrama, or really anything other than a comedy, i might have liked it better. as it stands, i was expecting to laugh and didn't. in fact, i was so far from laughing that i almost turned it off to stare at a blank TV, which would have been funnier.
