John: That's bullshit. What about Lori? She's hot.
Ted: No, Lori's from Pennsylvania. That's not a Boston girl.
John: They're not that bad.

Not what I expected . Most of the best parts were ( go fiqure)... The previews. Felt myself, and others around us 'trying' to laugh . Just wasn't happening , whether it was chemistry , confusion of blending a romantic comedy with FG material , the forcing of "gay" jokes ( and I'm straight ...... Not sure . This humor better in smaller segments ... I lost interest .Not to say I didn't like the characters , have seen most of Wahlbergs films and enjoy his dry sense of humor . This film just seemed awkward and how far can you ride the "talking bear , that cusses , smokes dope , wrecks cars , gets supermodels ( aka hookers), drinks buds, fights, reasons , argues and does it throughout the movie .. Just got stale . Go see it yourself , you be the judge.
