OK, so I've read a lot of negative things about this movie. One friend said they walked out, one said it was the worst movie they ever saw, and all the critics really hate it...I think on rotten tomatoes, it's at like a 4 percent. So when I put the DVD in, I even said to Emily "from what I've heard this is the worst movie of 2013". She didn't understand why I would then want to watch it, but I always give a movie a chance, even if I doubt I'll like it(I'm nuts like that). So, this movie is bad. It's a series of comedic type skits strung together over a couple different narratives. Kind of like a very, very bad episode of Saturday Night Live, or like "Kentucky Fried Movie", only not as funny. The cast is insane. This is the biggest, star studded cast I've ever seen, and I know the directors had to have something over them all to get them to do this. Real quick I'll list some of the cast: Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts, Hugh Jackman, Gerard Butler, Richard Gere, Halle Berry, Terrance Howard, Sean William Scott, Johnny Knoxville, Amanda Banks, Josh Duhamal, Dennis Quiad, and literally probably another 20 notable actors. It's ridiculous. So when I watched it, I was like "this sucks and isn't very funny". Then the next day at work I was discussing it, and found myself and whomever I was telling, laughing hard at the situations of the skits. Its like the idea of some of the skits are awesome, but the way they were strung together or executed wasn't. Like an example, a couple home schools their son and want to give him a "Real high school experience". They do this by basically bullying him, and it's pretty funny. But, I get why people don't like it, and why a lot of people who just say this is stupid. Because it's that type of comedy that may take a while to settle in, especially considering how crazy it is. But if you like dumb, slapstick type humor, some of this movie is pretty funny(some of the skits are just bad, like real bad). Especially after the fact. I think time is going to be better to this movie, and eventually it'll have a cult like following of people who really enjoy it. Give it a chance. Worse thing that could happen is you hate it. Who knows you may kind of like it, even if it's a day or two after you watched it.
