Throughout the credits, graphics and text are shown describing many things, such as the comparisons between CEO salaries and their employees, various fraud schemes and how much they paid out, etc. And all the way at the end of credits, there is an outtake from the Chinese restaurant scene.

I saw the film with my 60-year-old mom and my teenage son and we all cracked up throughout the film--sometimes at different things and to different degrees. That's touching a true cross-section!! Although the latter 1/3 of the movie isn't quite as funny as the first 2/3, it still brought the laughs. I can't imagine why anyone who enjoyed Will Ferrell in Anchorman, Talladega Nights, and Step Brothers would give this movie anything below 7 stars.
Maybe the reviewer who said that everyone didn't get the comic references was on to something...although I can't imagine why people wouldn't. There are humorous references about modern technology, sports, pimpin', geriatrics, !! Who can't find something in one of those to laugh at?!? lol
I say DEFINITELY check it out for yourself! I needed a good laugh and I got one...even some true tears of laughter.
