Yawn...
21 July 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Where do I begin, where do I begin? Let me say that I am glad to see the ratings finally taking a nose dive on IMDb. Because this may or may not be one of the dumbest, most over-rated "comedies" I've encountered. It MAY, i repeat MAY have worked if this were released in the very early 90s perhaps, but trying this desperately to be shocking with fart and dry hump humor in the age of the internet is fkng lame. From what I understand a comedy is supposed to be humorous. This movie tries incredibly hard to be 'shocking', and fails miserably. It is one of the most BORING comedies I have ever seen in my life. That is a fact. It's difficult to differentiate if this thing is aimed at 12 year old boys going through puberty or adults or pot-heads or what...this movie is a mess. It fails on all counts.

It's becoming incredibly difficult to find a 'feel good' comedy these days. Movies have been dumbed down to a point where it is becoming unbearable. I was genuinely so distraught from how awful this movie was that I unintentionally began to judge some of my friends based on their take on this piece of sh*t. It was getting unnecessary and unwarranted attention when it was released, having you believe this was one of the funniest movies in years. I wasn't impressed by the previews to begin with and I should have stuck with my initial feeling.

Look, I'm an avid pot smoker, I watch all sorts of films. I like the occasional stoner movie IF done right. This is not one of them. It is NOT funny NOR entertaining, I waited and waited with the hopes of something happening that would get a giggle out of me, I was left hanging from a noose. The story is SO incredibly boring that I actually got sleepy & I don't normally get drowsy during a movie. It gets worse and worse as the movie goes along in fact. I was just waiting for it to end already...just Fking END... drags on and on and gets melodramatic for some odd reason.

I used to watch Family Guy when the first 3 seasons originally aired prior to the cancellation. When the show came back, it immediately hit me how unfunny and tired the humour was. I dropped it. Shows such as South park, The Simpsons (1st ten seasons), Futurama have substance, and layers of depth and humour. Family Guy is as 2 dimensional as comedy can get. But this movie is not even on Family Guys level. This movie is god awful. I am being sincere when I say if you have at least half a brain and not the attention span of a guinea pig, then it should bore the living crap out of you. I threw it on with ZERO expectations and was somehow still disappointed.

I hope this movies ratings continue to plummet at least on IMDb as it should, because at this point, the zombies and film industry goons have stopped giving this sh** fake 10 star reviews.

Best thing about this movie, Mila Kunis's face.
