"007" producer Barbara Broccoli traditionally never allows any James Bond theme to be used in other films but Seth MacFarlane wrote her a letter asking for permission to use 'All Time High' from Octopussy (1983) as it was his mother's favorite song. Broccoli made a rare exception to her rule, hence John gets to slaughter the tune in a performance in front of a dismayed crowd. See more »

The opening credits were supposed to start with "Universal Pictures and Media Rights Capital Presents" as shown in the trailers/commercials and the back of the DVD/Blu-Ray covers. But, for unknown reasons, it starts with "Media Rights Capital Presents" and "Universal Pictures Presents" in the actual movie. See more »
Not worth it, regardless of Seth MacFarlane's reputation.
Not as funny as I thought it would be. The humor isn't consistent with that of what Seth MacFarlane has been doing on Family Guy for years yet I get this sense that this movie was trying hard to be like Family Guy. This is where I got turned off.
There wasn't anything original, there may be a few good and funny moments here and there but at the end it just didn't all fit well. I was a little disappointed by the ending because it left me feeling that there might be a sequel (God I hope not)... Mila Kunis played her role very well and I do have to say that this is a rather OK performance for Wahlberg.
Overall it's not worth the allotted time, it's disappointing. You could be watching something else, there are plenty of funnier movies released recently that'd be more worth your time.
