Quotes

Justin: Life can get confusing, and you lose sight of the person you wanted to be. Sometimes, you have to go through hell and back. To see that the problems you thought were so big in your life, weren't so big after all. And that courage you always wanted, you always had it. You just needed to get in the game. And with hard work, and a little help from a friend, you can become that guy you have always wanted to be.

A Good Laugh Here and There
18 September 2014 | by louski-54491See all my reviews

At first I was not sure if I liked the movie. I assumed it was just going to be another quotable movie where at times you had a good laugh. But because I love both of the two main actors from the show New Girl, I just had to see it. I actually found myself laughing way more than I expected and would love to watch this movie again. Some parts were taken too far but it had a good amount of clean humor and a little crude humor as well. It takes a lot for a comedy to earn itself ten stars. This film did not quite do it because of the scenes that were over the top and probably should have just been left out all together. Don't expect the same laugh out loud comedy like New Girl from Let's Be Cops but it can definitely lift your mood and give you an occasional belly laugh.
