Found it entertaining and amusing
28 July 2013 | by talcol-1See all my reviews

I took my two younger teens and all three of us enjoyed the movie. Granted we're not going to run out and buy the CD nor curse the Academy when it receives no nominations, but it was a fun light comedy with some humorous lines and it never lulled. It was a good get-out-of-house with the boys movies and I think those that wrote dissertation-sized reviews panning it might have been expecting a little more than was offered. If you have limited movie watching funds then you might want to save you money for one of the bigger films but it was fine for a last minute decision to catch a movie at the local theater. Jeff Bridges character was funny and he did a good job with delivery. It may have borrowed a little from some other movies but no more than many others and it was an amusing premise. If you're not looking for rocket science but rather a cute movie with some good laughs, I would recommend it.
