a real test of your sense of humor, logic reasoning and patience
6 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i consider myself with a strong sense of humor and a die-hard movie lover, but this movie is just a ridiculous farce with two young dudes trying so hard to be funny and smart by following their absolutely stupid dialog. this film had signed up a lot of new generation promising near 30s good, well-trimmed male and female actors, one who played the fantastic role in "suits", and the other two or three females who have appeared in many pretty watchable films. i just don't understand why they would have signed up to play roles in this stupid film that titled itself as a "comedy" yet turned out to be just a a ridiculous "farce". people often mistake the thin line that distinguish a comedy and a farce. a good comedy never distant itself away from the reality but only subtly injecting sense of humor and human errors to generate certain unavoidable funny outcomes, putting the people involved in a jam. while awkwardness causing unimaginable and unpredictable consequences, those situations also reflecting the truth and reality of what we have to face, to deal with and sometimes to accept, yet somehow those people still survived and laughed in the end. but nothing at all for the farce. a farce only creates stupidity, ridiculousness, childishness, absolutely impossible, totally absurd scenario, storyline, dialog, all the characters involved in the farce must be act stupid or brain-dead funny with unbearable wise-cracking expressions, gestures and thought-to-be hilariousness but only turned out to be unacceptable ridiculous. this farce is certified when these two young dudes dressed up as valet parking service at the funeral and drove away the mourners' BMW and sold to a stolen car marketeer. this highly unlikely, totally ridiculous beginning scene has immediately tagged this stupid film as a 'farce' instead of a believable 'comedy', and from then on, it went on just with more ridiculous stupidities.
