The more determined Ted is to confront his demons, to get closure, and to withdraw from his family, the more Ted is yanked into the chaos of their lives. So, when Ted Morgan decides to kill himself, he finds a reason to live. Written by
Well, first of all the film is hilarious. A little crass and dirty at times, but nonetheless, truly hysterical. It's the films saving grace.
The subplots abound and at times feel a little preachy, but the film still has it's heart in the right place and it's never, ever dull.
Sean William Scott is perfectly cast, and other casting choices were also spot-on.
This film falls in that late coming of age slash cali-alt humor genre.. King of Cali, everything must go, seeking a friend, or jeff who lives at home mold. And much like the latter 2, it's solid. These can certainly be hit or miss, but i laughed and smiled my way through 80% of this film.
Certainly worth a redbox considering all the crap pictured next to it. See it!
It's daring. The film tackles some heavy subject matter in some politically incorrect ways, but thanks to the humor we all shouldn't take any of it too seriously - besides the film does have some positive messages thrown-in there - they're just a bit dampened by the whole crassness and in-your-face humor. It bites off a little more than it can chew, but it's still a very funny and enjoyable film that could barely catch the back-end of a top 25 for 2015 if this year keeps on stinkin'
