While the characters made several references to Portland for business and home in Saint Louis, all of the US scenes were filmed in Boston. Boston is never mentioned in the movie. See more »

Weird that so many people did not like this movie. I suppose if you had high expectations, you would be let down, but other than that, it was a thoroughly enjoyable well constructed comedy. At least a 7.2
The punch lines and comedy came off as low key and sort of anti-climactic, but I thought that gave it a greater sense of realism. I saw the IMDb ratings, and set my expectations low, and then looked for the redeeming qualities of the film, sometimes that's all it takes to get more out of it than the high-expectation crowd.
The main character suffers one realistic defeat after another, and sometimes that's how life goes. That sense of exhaustion from trying was clearly pervasive throughout the film, but the main character keeps chugging along and does not give in to the adversity he faces. To me, it created a compelling every day sort of comedy that was accessible and portrayed by fun characters.
There is some gratuitous nudity & lewdness that detracts in some ways from the film, but being thick skinned, it really did not bother me at all. Bullying is a surface theme, but really it's "being there" for your fiends and family that is the real message and the bullying is sort of mentioned as a mechanism to show adversity and rising above it with the people we love. What's not to like about that? Bunch of "nose in the air" stiffs didn't get it, so what.
Very watchable "b" comedy that does not try and over-achieve. Good movie for a quiet evening where you don't want to think too much. Anyone can highbrow this film and put it down, but it has tangible qualities that do not make it and idiotic "dumb & dumber" type film.
