Goofs

When Ryan and Justin are looking through Mossi Kasic's file with Segars at the police station, one of the papers is a "Notice of Inmate's Release" form, noting the "INMATE DATE OF BIRH" (sic) as 07/15/2009 and the "DATE OF SENTENCING" of 02/08/1995, suggesting that Mossi was sentenced 14 years before his own birth.

Taste determines your rating of this movie
28 September 2014 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

When I saw the trailer I was reluctant about seeing this movie. I was afraid it was a standard popular American comedy in which absurdity-comedy was the focus, like most stand-up comedians and Southpark. The movie does include these kind of jokes, but because of the sequence of jokes and the "story" (as in standard rom-com "story") I found the movie to be very funny. But then again it is difficult to make a movie which everybody thinks is funny, for example I think the Achorman 1 was the most hilarious movie ever but the sequel I thought was terrible. So I think you will either love or hate this movie depending on your sense of humor.
