Could not sit through this... Totally awful material. Not funny at all. A waste of time. Empathizing with the characters was not even possible, they just act plain stupid and senseless. After 30 minutes nothing slightly funny had happened. Steve Carell in the 40 year old virgin, still difficult to empathize with his character, but 100 times more funnier. So if you're really bored and have no alternative movie title laying around.... The movie is also categorized as romantic and in the crime area... so i know it is not 100% a comedy, but still senseless material. Cannot imagine anyone acting this way in real life...maybe Forrest Gump...
