I honestly couldn't stop laughing
13 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Good God...where to begin. I actually watched this on Nextflix because there was literally nothing else to watch....and I am SO glad that I did. The other reviewers who have reviewed it, I couldn't agree more. The movie is extremely racist (which I personally love and found hilarious) - the movie is literally no joke suppose to be made terrible, and it is...but it is in a sense of hilarity that is unabashed in recent years. I had to keep constantly checking on my girlfriend and 11 month old because I was actually laughing out loud, and very loud at that. The laughs were right after another, Kevin Sorbo is classic - i'm cracking up while i'm writing this because the movie is just so stupid - it was just hilarious. If you like straight up dumb movies, watch this. Please remember, the movie is SUPPOSE TO BE MADE POORLY! that's what makes it fantastic. It was one of the best comedies that i have seen in quite some time, and I mean that.
