A film that did not age well, not that it was ever good, with bad, offensive jokes, if you could even call them that.
A friend of mine showed me this movie and I must say, it was the best comedy movie I've ever seen.
This movie is nothing short of amazing its one of my most rewatched movie.
The basic Rom-com, Unfortunately hasn't aged very well. It was cool seeing Zach Galifianakis young though.
I've always loved this movie. I saw it right when it came onto DVD and have rewatched it many times. I think I just understood that the characters and jokes that people thought were offensive were there very intentionally to point out their absurdity. Also Jake Gyllenhaal is amazing and adorable.
A great comedy. Period. One of his best roles.
you want 500 dolla !
Good stuff. Gyllenhaal is the most attractive man I can imagine, and seeing him in this context is hilarious. I liked this movie when it came out, and since then I have grown to love him in a handful of serious roles, so this was a fun thing to revisit. My uncle gave me a scratched copy of this from blockbuster when I was a kid, and I still have it now in my late 20s. This movie is just FUN, and the cameos are pretty great. Underrated. Nearly twenty years later, it holds up.
Is it terrible? Yes. Will i watch it again? Yes. It's so bad but somehow i love it. I love how this came out the same year as my all time favorite Jake Gyllenhaal movie, and is a total disaster compared to it.

LIFE IS AN ADVENTURE. DON'T BLOW IT.
I saw a trailer for this film on the DVD of the last movie I rented and it looked like the stupidest thing ever. But then I rented it and when I watched it I was liking this isn't the Corneto trilogy but it's a pretty fun charming comedy.
The film opens up with Jimmy saying he was born without an immune system. He felt happy in his bubbled up until a beautiful girl named Chloe moves next door. She would visit him everyday after school. On her birthday however she wanted Jimmy with her but he was stuck in his bubble. She ends up agreeing to marry her boyfriend Mark and when Jimmy sees the gift she made for him he decides to go too Niagara Falls and stop the wedding.
Everything in the film itself is charming but not really all that funny. The acting is average to say the least it's like watching your best friend do some of the silliest things you know he usually wouldn't do. When I saw this the first time I actually thought to myself you know early 2000s comedy's are a little bit better than the newer ones. Danny Trjo was my favorite part in the film. I'm giving Bubble Boy a three and a half out five.
