Laugh out loud brilliance
7 February 2012 | by gembo20See all my reviews

Just picked this up on DVD and was really pleasantly surprised by how imaginative and funny it was. I really liked all the characters and their relationships with each other and the way human story really shone through the humour.

I especially loved how the large cast really melded well together and bounced off each other. This was aided by some hilarious cameos that I did not expect but really liked. As a lover of comedies in a similar vein i really thinks it stands up with films like Hitch and The Hangover.

All in all i really enjoyed the film and felt it was one of my favourite comedies of 2011. i think it is a great example of tight streamlined filmmaking and i look forward to seeing more of the cast in the future. 9/10
