Stupid, but funny.
22 July 2007 | by aisandler2See all my reviews

Never had any interest in seeing this movie, but I caught in on HBO on a Sunday afternoon and found myself laughing out loud on multiple occasions. Better than I expected. Worth watching if you're looking for some good light laughs. Luke Wilson is pretty hilarious when he takes a beating, but Rainn Wilson steals every scene he's in, pretty much playing a sex hungry version of Dwight Schrute. Throws some funny twists onto the Super hero/villain dynamic as well. It's a well thought out movie and an interesting take on the superhero genre, but most of the execution is mediocre; in the end some of the jokes work and some don't. 6/10
