For those who think family comedies are crap - you'll love this one!
20 September 2014 | by alx-boychenkoSee all my reviews

What makes a good comedy? Is it character development, plot, production values, maybe? I would draw a straight line, because it's that simple: it should make you laugh. That's where most comedies with high production values, character development or expensive decoration and FX in the range of 8+ rating fail: they just don't deliver those skull cracking gigs and belly thrashing laughs. Is let's say "The Grand Budapest Hotel" a better movie? - Yes! Well, objectively, let's not deny obvious cumulative well earned 8.2 points. Did it make me laugh? - Nope, even though I've enjoyed my time spent, it only made me smile at utmost. Hence if you are "hate family comedies" kind of a person and want some pure and simple raw fun, turn to "How to be a Man" - you sure gonna love it.
