Crazy Credits

After the Paramount Pictures logo ends it goes directly to the Dreamworks Pictures logo, and when the Reliance Entertainment almost ends, a star is added on top of the "A" and four black dots is added on the bottom of the "A" and when the logo is fading out the "A" on the logo is changed to a Christmas tree on a pie in the office. During these logos a mix of ''Merry Christmas and happy new year'' and "Deck The Halls" is played. See more »

Ignore these bizarre bad reviews
3 September 2018 | by Jeff-123See all my reviews

They really don't know what they're talking about.

Hilarious Hard-R screwball comedy, smart, wonderfully acted, tight script, with funny improv from a lot of talented actors with solid comedy cred.

It's a party blowout movie. Bachelor Party. Can't Hardly Wait. Superbad. Old School. It's like that. A great way to spend a couple of hours.
