At what point in reading the script does an actor turn to the writer and refuse to say the lines on the page? At what point is 'people think the Polish are the world's dummies when it's really the T-Rex' considered unacceptable? Clearly, not soon enough. Racist, sexist and painfully unfunny it veers between the tritest of childish fart jokes and adult sexual reference in a way that leaves you fumbling for the remote control. Will Ferrell used to have a career but stuff like this is why it went down the toilet. Anna Friel should stay away from Hollywood and stick to what she's good at: serious drama on the small screen. Particularly as in this, she is just the butt of awful jokes. Danny McBride had his twenty minutes in Pineapple Express and should just give it a rest. At one point Ferrell says 'That is so dumb and childish'. Quite.
While not the highest budget or quality film, it seems to deliver an entertaining experience from beginning to end. I thought this movie was original, funny, and it kept my interest all the way through (which *always* says a lot, IMO).
I put this movie on late and surprisingly didn't fall asleep. That in itself deserves some thumbs up. Come on! This kind of movie isn't supposed to be disected. It's totally rediculous. But the good kind of rediculous. Will Ferrell doesn't disappoint either. Give them a break guys! Watch this if you need something light hearted and goofy to cheer you up on a rainy night.
I really don't understand the hate? This film was hilarious and was a joyful adventure the first time I watched it and I've rewatched it multiple times and still find it highly entertaining and funny. People either have a dry sense of humor or I'm crazy.
This movie was ass I only chuckled a few times. All the acting was shit except for Danny McBride, who plays a pathetic loser. He actually made it watchable, but even he couldn't save the garbage script
Impressive special effects. The film had potential. I would have kept the effects and done a total script re-write. Could not sit through much of it. On the bright side, some of the scenes had potential.
