The absolute worst message you could send to teenagers, 8 June 2012
Author: Alex Vojacek from San Luis, Argentina

I am furious, not because I watched this whole movie (which I did for the only purpose of doing a proper review) but for the painful experience it was for me to do so.

From the first 10 minutes of the movie you can really see what this piece of crap is going to be like, dumb, terrible, insulting are not proper words to describe it.

From the first minutes you see a couple of teenagers insulting everybody, more insulting, treating them and others like crap and just plain insulting pretty much everywhere. I don't have a problem with this words, in fact I usually say a few of them in a day because, well, they are just the right words to describe some situations, but, using this kinds of words to go shop, to talk to a stranger, to say hi, to speak to your friend, to go out of our house, to drive a car, well, it reaches a point in which the whole dialog you're gonna see in the movie is insulting to the same intelligence of the viewer and at that point, I get annoyed.

That alone cannot contribute for a bad movie, bad examples and really bad signals are things that really contribute to completely destroy a good premise (like this one).

According to this movie, this things are just OK to do: -Going about and insulting everybody in your path if you think it's cool. -Going ahead and call your only son a loser because it's not the star of the show in school (that is the lowest point a movie can reach). -Having a frenetic friend who compel you to have sex with anyone in your path, if you can't do it, just go get hi, use and abuse of drinks in any way you can, try to have more sex and then just use any action figure to simulate having it in another people's house just because you think that's cool. -Go buy stuff to get hi, even if you're very young and that probably will destroy the few neurons you had left, but, in the process, try and steal something from the seller's house, just because stealing is fun! -If by mistake the person discovers you are stealing, just turn on your car and run!, if by any chance you hit the man on the street, please, do not stop to see if he is OK, just run! -If the guy somehow manage to survive, just call him a moron because he broke the front glass of your car.

Are serious??, are these the kind of message that teenagers should receive? I understand that this is just a movie, but, sometimes too much is just too much.

The funniest part is when parents gave them a nice car to the son (because of his birthday) and the friends keeps telling him how bad that is and that they can't go out with that car?!, seriously, this is materialism-consumerism-capitalism to the extreme and it's just plain horrendous, the movie is hideous in more ways that it seems at plain sight.

If you think teenagers any age should watch this movie and they probably will think that all the things here are 'cool' you are being part of the dumbing down movement of the masses that is going on right now with Hollywood.

Well, i'm not part of it, this movie is crap and sadly I don't have a zero or -1 to qualify this disaster of a movie and had to be settled with 1.

This movie is impossible to watch if you are reasonable sane person with good values, probably watchable if you're sufficiently hi enough but that is not for me, not in this life.

The movie serves to show the absolute worst and most stupid and horrid examples of how you should NOT be and this examples are put into perspective as something fun and that in itself speaks volumes about the level of stupidity that is feed up to the public this days.

More than 70 million dollars to make this crap? I saw movies done by 3000 dollars that are 1500 times better than this one, I could name a few hundreds of them but, I think you understood my point.

Oh, treating humans like crap is bad, but the movie also had to show how this guys treat animals like crap too, not a single thing is right about this movie. I am really upset that this kind of things are considered "comedy" this days....

Oh, and one more thing, Oliver Cooper please do us all a favor and do not act anymore, on any other movie, yours was the worst acting ever done on a movie, any quality aside, and your character was a lunatic, ready to be put to sleep or in a mental institution, not a figure to be considered a "cool" guy, this teen seems to be hi the whole movie and it's the most irritating character I've ever had to endure.

PD: even IMDb complained about my language and I tend to be polite, just image the level you will face in the movie.

Nuff said
