Critic Review - New Yorker

The movie's main thrust is lowball wish fulfillment, which comes too cheaply.

I think you take life to seriously. This movie pure unreal escapism. It did it's job it made people laugh. Well it did where i watched it.

I agree. I wanted my time back after I watched this movie. It was so incredibly stupid. Is it that film makers and screenwriters are just too lazy to develop a funny film with characters and dialogue that actually make you laugh? I know it takes work but you're making MILLIONS, try harder. This was just a waste of time.

While not quite up there with The Hangover it certainly is on a par with Hot Tub and is pure escapism. At times it actually tries to hard, but overall the movie does it's job, now how can you knock a movie that has Aniston in sexy underwear sucking a banana? Spacey plays the asshole role to perfection with his tongue firmly planted in his cheek. Great cameos and a good laugh all round. Now don't be stupid and do another one!

I think I'm missing something here... The movie is of the "dead baby comedy" genre, agreed? Black comedy, right?

One of the bests samples for the year. It wasn't that lowball. It wasn't that raunchy. No nudity, at least.
Just ease up and laugh.
