Goofs

The "Deed" that is shown to us in the movie is titled "Deed of Trust". A warranty deed should have been used instead. A Deed of Trust does not give title to the property to the person buying the property, it gives title to a lender in trust to secure repayment of a loan used to buy the property. See more »

Random, vulgar, and uncomfortable.
6 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

Yes, there were a couple good laughs to be had during this movie. But for the most part, it was just weird. Even some of the funny scenes went on too long and got to be awkward. The "story" (if you can call it that) was predictable. The jokes were not, because they were so outlandish that they came across as gimmicky.

Not that a movie like this requires great acting skills, but the roles played by Rudd, Aniston and Watkins are at least believable. But the credibility stops there. Most of the other characters are over-acted, and poorly-developed.

And one of my biggest pet peeves: scenes from the trailer were NOT in the film. THIS DRIVES ME MAD! It's like a restaurant advertising a lunch special that they don't have in stock.

Bottom line: save your movie, and save your time.
