User Reviews

 
Not funny, not clever, really not much of anything.
10 April 2011 | by VidsGoerSee all my reviews

When I go to see a comedy, I'm usually satisfied if I get a good two or three hearty laughs. This one gave me one or two chuckles, no full laughs, and an awful lot of groans.

The actors did a decent job with what they were given. The plot started out well enough, but soon devolved in a series of tenuously connected scenes, many completely absurd. However, not absurd enough to be a good farce.

I'm not one to shy away from expletives, particularly in a good action movie, but the gratuitous expletives in this movie were really distracting, inappropriate, and out of character. I'm not sure if that was due to the script or direction or both. Either way, not good.

So basically, bad writing, bad direction, okay acting. May or may not be a waste of time, depending on your mindset.
