Quotes

[first lines]
Danny Campbell: [narrating] I grew up in Staten Island New York. It might not sound like it, but I did. For those of you who don't know, Staten Island is like Brooklyn and New Jersey had a baby. A baby that would up to be either a cop, or a fireman. And you know, some how it gets a bad rap, but really it's just like any other suburb. I mean, sure it looks like this

Not funny
8 August 2015 | by gary-delcourtSee all my reviews

What do you get when you cross the classics Caddyshack and Superbad with Lorne Michaels producing? An unfunny movie that is not surprisingly disappointing. Has anyone done more to set comedy back 100 years than Michaels? If you are going to rip off characters from comedic genius' Ramis and Apatow then make sure you steal their jokes too. The acting is good but the premise is stale. Kate Walsh, in particular, plays a strong role as Danny's overprotective borderline neurotic mom. Beyond the acting, the writing is average. What could have been funny scenes fall short of hitting the comedic mark. Overall, I give it 3 out of 10 stars and that's being generous. If you have time rent Superbad and Caddyshack. The originals are much better versions than this poor derivative.
