My room mates watched this flick, told me it was worth a watch but nothing special.
Full disclosure: I am a huge David Wain fan, I loved Stella, I watch Wainy Days, etc.
This movie is about two city types who have a run of bad luck, end up at hippie commune. Funny stuff ensues.
Not an original concept by any means but comedic none the less. Purely hilarious cast sans Paul Rudd, I'm not a huge fan but I understand why people do.
To the guy saying "its unrealistic": Hi, I'm movies. Have you ever seen me before? Bottom Line: If you liked The State, Stella, Michael & Michael Have Issues, Children's Hospital, or the like. You will more than likely enjoy this movie.
7 out of 10.
