The screenwriters needed to make up their mind
17 July 2015 | by DocEphraimBatesSee all my reviews

Yeah, I went ahead and gave it 7 out of 10. I was torn between a 7 or a 6, but I really did enjoy the movie. It made me laugh enough, for sure, and while the story isn't going to win any Academy Awards for originality, the actors did a good job with what they had to work with. The problem I had with this movie is that it tried to be two things at once, and it never really did make up its mind either way. For the most part, it's a lot of crude, rude humor and crazy sex/blatant nudity, but for some reason amidst all of that, the writer(s) keep trying to pull at our heart strings with the Vince Vaughn character's kids having bullying problems at school. Granted, bullying is a pretty hot topic button these days, but I don't really think that a German bath house, wheelbarrow sex in hotel rooms, and a gay fetish club in Berlin is really the platform from which you want to preach it. This movie would have been a lot better if they had picked one genre or the other and just stuck with it. Other than that, this movie isn't really all that bad. Nowhere nearly as bad as The Watch. Some good laughs, the naked people are pretty attractive, and Tom Wilkinson (who ISN'T naked in this film, thank goodness) is refreshingly funny in a rare comedic turn.
