One of the worst movies i saw this year. I cannot believe why i let my friends persuade me to spend 9 Euros (for the cinema ticket) to watch it. The humorous scenes are so stretched out and so intentional that are not funny any more, all the actors are over-acting in a way that it's like trying to tell you "now...i'm going to do something funny now, be ready to laugh" and the sounds & music were so loud that i couldn't at least take a nap until it's over.
No reason to watch it, unless you need a reason to spend 1,5 hour standing in front of your TV set and eat a lot of popcorn, candies, marshmallows etc.
