The patch on the right sleeve of Franklin's Army jacket is from MACV-SOG (Military Assistance Command Vietnam-Studies and Observation Group), an Army Special Forces unit that specialized in secret, behind-enemy-lines operations in North Vietnam and Laos. See more »

That is the best 2300 bucks I ever spent. I got it at a place called relaxtheback.com. It's like Toys-R-Us for your ass and back.

You know you are in trouble when a cast of men entering middle age are playing characters that would usually be cast with teens. Even with teens they would be the "annoyingly dumb guys" seen in so many films.
I could not find even one saving grace for this film. The actors are all playing characterizations that are two dimensional and that they have repeatedly done before.
Nothing new is added. The jokes fall flat. It feels like it was intended for actors half their age but written buy guys twice their age who thought "those young people will think this is funny." It is not.
Spare yourself from this one.
I can not understand the fairly high rating for this film on this site. The family's of people connected with the film must be giving it high marks.
