Goofs

Around 1:11:00 and 1:14:00 in the movie, a scene can be seen two times. It's the one where on can see the cop and counselor's car from behind, as they are going fast.

There is a black car on the left, a grey one on the right, and a white painting on the road. It's obvious this is one scene used twice. See more »

Not as bad as I heard
13 September 2017 | by boardy-55103See all my reviews

It was 5 stars .

It was in no way "good".

But it wasn't nearby as bad as reviews led me to believe.

I smirked through most of it and chuckled a few times with one belly laugh.

I think Ferrell and Poehler worked OK together.

Worth a watch.
