After watching the movie, this thought came to mind: The message the movie delivers is great, but the overall execution was mediocre.
The comedic aspect of the movie delivers. I thought the comic angle, although not necessary, was a good compliment. Jason Lee is superb, as is Dwight Ewell. In fact, all the acting is generally good. However, the main point to the movie, the evolution of the relationship of Holden and Alyssa, does not deliver. Whether it's poor acting, or bad script writing, their relationship does not seem genuine. Unfortunately, that takes away from the message the movie is trying to deliver.
I'm giving it a 6/10.
