Daft and sexist
11 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

I don't get it. What's funny about a teddy bear misbehaving? Or am I not the target group (being 36?)? Certain teenagers may find this kind of pointless movie funny with sexist jokes, sexy women and... well that's it. I thought we'd seen enough of these kind of movies with 30 plus men not willing to grow up and having to make a choice between friends/a friend and a woman. Perhaps it's an American thing but I find it totally impossible to relate to these kind of "choices" in real life (being a woman)- between a partner and friends (most people I know including myself have BOTH friends and partners) and nor can I relate to 35 plus men behaving like the main character, unless they are totally losers. There seems to be no point with having a teddy bear as a friend, a part from it's OK to cuddle each other in a boyish way (obviously there just had to be a fart sound to make it OK to stay close when THUNDER comes along) It's SAD and I found it painful to watch as I kind waited for the real plot and some more action to come along, which just didn't happen. I am glad I rented just it on DVD.
