Non stop laughs
14 February 2016 | by alexknappenbergerSee all my reviews

Listen, I haven't reviewed a movie on here before but I personally loved the humor in this movie so much that I don't feel its fair a few stuck up people are giving this bad reviews. It's obviously a movie (or TV series) that doesn't take itself seriously and with that in mind I found it to be the funniest comedy I've seen that I can remember. I'm also not generally a football fan, not really my thing but when you watch this movie it doesn't seem like a football movie, its packed with silliness, foul language, nudity, brashness and some very straightforward but well placed and unexpected humor. I can see some people thinking the style of humor in this movie is tasteless or immature but to me personally it was speaking to me. It also has an underlying parody aspect of generally overpaid athletes where the main character Thad is bigger than life which I found to be a nicely written character. Overall 10/10 I'm glad I discovered this I'm watching the TV series now.
