One of the few good things that I can say, is that I luckily did not go to a cinema to watch it. And I wanted to, but when it came out I never had the time to go see it. Which means I saved money (the renting of the disc was far cheaper), but on the other hand I did not save myself from a dreading annoying experience.
People who know the singer Sasha (german Star of sorts), will understand where this is going, when I state that he was by far the best "actor" in this mess. A movie that tries to capture the found footage craze (in the most horrible way you can imagine, that doesn't even make sense, unless it was meant to be shot part found footage, part "normal" filmmaking. But even that is executed poorly at best) with a bit of a Hangover.
The biggest problem is, that it's a lot of build-up, but no real payoff. The movie struggles to find a rhythm, but never does have anything to show for itself. A script filled with ideas that may have sounded good, when they were thought of, but never were realized in a fashion that is slightly funny. If you want found footage that is aiming at Hangover or American Pie style humor, go watch "Project X". For all it's faults, it's way better than this right here. And if you want a real comedy about marriage, either watch "Bridesmaids" (which seems to get ripped off here too, but completely unoriginal and far from funny, which is the one thing the movie keeps in sync throughout -> how bad it is and stays) or go watch "A few best men"! Comedy gold and no holds barred. Avoid this at any cost, unless it is meant as punishment for someone else (but why be so cruel?)
