I wonder how many of the people that laud this movie are the same ones that complain about Grand Theft Auto.
I don't mind fiction, I love it, I even like mythology like "Jason and the Argonauts" and what not so I don't mind watching a totally made up story like the one about the mythical figure "Jesus" but I don't watch slasher flicks so I hated this.
If you like gore horror like the Saw movies you might enjoy this one.

This is one of those movies where I kept waiting for it to start and then it was over. The movie is basically a bunch of funny scenes with no real story except, "Oh, we lost the groom. Bummer. We should now go do funny things with this amazing talent we've got."
While Zack Galifianakis and Ed Helms put in hilariously, brilliant performances, and show you just how entertaining a good comic can be, if you've seen the previews you've seen the movie.

What's the fascination with 200 year old guys, aka "Vampires," dating teenage girls? Why would a 200 year old guy even want to talk to a teenage girl? Oh... right.
Still how come this is OK but all of a sudden I'm getting the cops called on me and put in handcuffs when I try to "date" a 200 year old corpse? Double standards man, double standards.
Oh, and the movie is OK as far as teen drama's go so if you're an old guy trying to hook up with a teenage girl this is the movie to take her to.

A fairly generic story told with style... and hundreds of millions of dollars.
Well worth watching and even though the story isn't particularly inventive I still found myself absorbed in the telling. That's the mark of a truly excellent film maker and James Cameron is brillent at doing exactly that; telling a story, even a boring one, in a way that's captivating and engaging.

Excellent film making and an example of sci-fi writing at its best. It takes a science fiction setting and tells a realistic, entertaining drama on that stage.
You can stop reading reviews now because some a-hole will try to ruin it for you as every single review I've read does.
This is all you need to know: There's a guy on the moon. 'Nuff said.
Now go buy the DVD and watch this without discussing it with anyone.

How can movies like these be made? Does no one say, "He just told his childhood self that he's a time traveler why would he be surprised or confused when someone shows up saying they know him?" Or, "Why wouldn't the first thing out of her mouth be, 'I know you're a time traveler.'" Or, "Why WOULDN'T she share her diary with him immediately so he'll know when he's going to travel?"
What a horribly, horribly written movie. I just can't stomach lazy writing and this kind of stupid illogical nonsense is the epitome of sloth.
This is clearly a chick-flick that thinks women are stupid and don't care about intelligent plots. How insulting.

Wow, what a terribly bad movie. I imagine the only people that enjoy this are the same ones that enjoy the T.V. show "Monk." In other words old people. This movie sucks.
The acting is flat, the writing is horrible, and the slap-stick is hackneyed beyond belief. I don't think there was a director or they would have corrected these deficits. It's not "funny and stupid" it's just stupid in an unfunny a way as possible.
If you hate yourself and hate entertainment please do watch this. Otherwise run, run as fast as you can to some other film as this one will make you want to stab your eyes out and bludgeon your ears to stop the mediocrity.

The whole "it's so bad it's good" joke is only worth about 30 seconds of your time. Only film school grads would find this entertaining for all of its obvious mistakes and missteps.
Why not just make a "so good it's good" movie? Oh, right, that would require actual work.
It's like the film makers have no respect for the viewer. We get the joke, it's a really bad movie, so why would we want to watch it?
Yes there are some funny bits about how bad the film making was in this genre, we already know all about it, you don't have to waste our time trying to make a whole film about it. Do a 2 or 3 minute short and that's enough.
It's like Tarentino's disastrous "Grindhouse" vomited on an incredibly bad, but not in a good way, 50's alien movie.
Horribly executed and insulting to the audience. We're not morons, we know funny bad cinema and this isn't it. If you want, "So bad it's good" watch the original "Evil Dead" and the even better remake. And then never watch another "so bad it's good" movie ever again because there are too many excellent movies people actually worked at making good to waste time on this kind of garbage.
I want a public apology from the film makers for this tripe.
