Critic Review - Chicago Reader

The movie is bracing for its bile but ultimately more frustrating than funny.

Frustrating because Chicago would be a good real life example.

"bracing for its bile"? I think not. It is best remembered for its crass biliousness. It sent me to the toilet but I was not searching for water.

Mr. Jones seems to have a problem with the movie%u2019s %u201Cmany logical inconsistencies%u201D.

It doesn%u2019t seem to occur to him that if the character%u2019s actions were much more consistent or logical, they wouldn%u2019t be as idiotic.

The movie%u2019s supposed to be frustrating too. It%u2019s as much a social commentary as it is a comedy. I%u2019m sure that at least once, we%u2019ve all had to deal with the sort of stupidity that leaves us pounding our head against a brick wall. That%u2019s what this movie is all about.

i agree, this movie was frustrating at times >_>, sometimes it just makes the jokes funnier (the whole electrolyte thing lmao) but other times it seemed tasteless -.-
