By turns pointless and pointlessly mean-spirited.

The single punch line that sparks genuine laughter comes three minutes into the film; after that, these marriages are made in comedy hell.

Nothing's quite so painful as failed comedy, and this atrocity is equivalent to a compound fracture.

There's bad, there's unwatchable, and then there's National Lampoon.

Truly this is one of the most off-putting, unpleasant and earth-shatteringly unfunny "comedies" I've ever seen.

Taking a trip to the retirement village and clipping grandma's toenails might be more pleasant that watching this film.

Apprently, even gross-out comedy requires some delicacy.

This is a lowbrow, low-budget homage to the Farrelly brothers -- and a pretty poor one at that.

Really, words can't convey how horrible this atrocity is. Nobody involved should ever be allowed near a studio again.

As abysmal as the film's concept is, the execution is unimaginably worse, a stomach-turning orgy of greed, lust, and sordid desperation...

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

So incredibly bad and astoundingly wrong-headed that it gets a star for its uncanny ability to make the viewer stare at the screen in glassy-eyed, open-mouthed wonderment.

This is the spectacularly inept directing debut of writer-producer Gary Priesler, who is said to have 12 other movies in development. God help us.

Writer-director Gary Preisler just plods through lame grossout jokes (most of them neutered to get a PG-13) that turn 87 minutes into an eternity.
