    While top heavy and loaded with recognizable talent this comic effort falls embarrassingly flat (cue crickets chirping at nighttime sound effect) and the whole affair feels rushed and not thought out. An unintentional zombie movie, this one will have you wondering who're the real zombies: those poor schmucks performing on screen, or those poor schmucks watching this.

    I did laugh and I didn't, this was a mixed bag for me. There were recognisable actors everywhere but they didn't always click. I did feel slightly letdown by the poor direction, why they included some jokes I will never know. Mixed focus and storytelling can't survive the duration, the film went all out but couldn't bridge the gap from slapstick to comedy.

    Completely what I expected. Pretty terrible except for Will Ferrell. He was so funny.

    This is what I call a good raunchy comedy that brings the goods! Man was this hilarious from start to finish about a failing car dealership that desperately seeks help from expert salesmen and that brings Don Ready (Jeremy Piven) and his dysfunctional team. There were a lot of great cameos in the film including Will Ferrell that were hysterical in there roles, I was laughing out loud more than once and I haven't laughed that hard at an comedy in quite awhile and it felt good but there are a lot of one liners in the movie so pay attention because they're freaking hilarious. This movie has the same over the top and unbelievable humor in it as the films like The Stepbrothers, Cadillac Man, Harold & Kumar and Hot Tub Time Machine so get ready to laugh. This movie didn't get a lot of great reviews so I kind of avoided it for awhile but now I regret doing that because this is the funniest comedy I've seen in a long time and it is balls to the wall entertainment that doesn't hold back and I dig comedies like that, sure it doesn't bring anything new to reinvent the comedy genre but who cares the movie doesn't try to do that and it knows what it is and it's a comedy that deserves to be called a comedy plain and simple. Overall I had a blast watching this movie and was consistently funny and I might as well buy this film that's how much I like it which I don't say that much about films because I'm not much of a rewatcher or buyer but that's how much I like this movie and I recommend it if you want a good laugh. More of a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
