General boredom...
4 May 2013 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I had initially expected something more from this movie, and it just failed to entertain me on any level. It was quite a disappointing experience, truth be told.

For a comedy, I had to look far and hard to find anything even remotely laughable in this movie. And I must admit that there are far better comedies in the same genre available out there.

The cast did good enough jobs with their given roles, I suppose, however I had just expected something more of a punch-through effort from Janeane Garofalo, as she usually delivers funny performances in the comedies that she is in.

If you enjoy comedies I suggest another movie than "General Education", because it is just not very funny.
