Dumb high school humor written for adults who don't want to think.
Even though I only managed to watch about 70% of this movie before turning it off, it still managed to make me feel as though my IQ dropped several points merely by watching an hour of it. All the funniest scenes were shown in the trailer, which is how we were convinced to watch it. Even the brilliant comedic capabilities of Chris Rock fell flat with this flick's horrendous writing. All the jokes were targeted at the intelligence level of dense teenagers, yet the subject matter was for those more mature. And whoever they hired to establish the mood of each scene with lighting must have come fresh off the daily soap opera boat. Every scene was over-lit and flat in appearance. This movie was a beginning-to-end failure.
