The movie's funny in the opening scenes and then forgets why it came to play.

It's pathetically sanctimonious to make a satire that becomes, then grossly exceeds, that which it's meant to mock.

Sloppy construction and a ludicrous subplot drag down the energy, allowing it to surface in mere fits and starts.
