I truly didn't mind this movie. It was kind of funny and a nice watch. Rob Corddry is the freaking man!

I had a hard time buying anything about this comedy, although it had a few fresh and funny moments. Mostly, though it is stale and unoriginal, while going for the lowest common denominator form of humor.

It’s not as bad as critics and most audiences claim it is. I think this is one of those movies that became a victim of group think. Don’t get me wrong–it did have forced humour (that either worked or didn’t) and characters making stupid decisions right after another–but none of it is meant to be taken seriously.
