What a sad experience!
13 November 2012 | by (Khuzdar Residentual Area) – See all my reviews

I wanted to say this movie isn't funny at all, but this would not be enough.

I went with my wife some days ago; we were waiting for some concern-free entertainment, but we were widely disappointed.

We should've got some hints from the beginning, as the theater was practically empty. As the movie started, it was quite clear something was definitely wrong: nobody ever laughed, after half a hour I had never even smiled. Moreover, the plot was sad and the gags ...absolutely miserable.

We were in one of those theaters carrying on the old tradition to split a movie in two parts, so we sneaked out during the half-time pause, but we had definitely wasted one hour of our lives (not to talk about the euros).

Seriously, I think this stuff might probably work somewhere in the world, but it is totally unlikely to please an European audience.
