I Liked the movie. No boring parts. Kept your interest the whole way through. Definitely worth watching.

I was hesitant to see this movie because it was hard for me to picture Jennifer Aniston as a stripper. The large number of positive reviews also worried me. When a comedy appeals to a large number of people I start getting images of an Adam Sandler movie or some asinine type of flick. I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. Although the drug dealer and stripper characters were hard to believe, if you can pass that hurdle then you are in for a good time.

What makes this movie better than most movies is that they don't over-saturate the audience with one type of humor. When something isn't working, they try something else. When something is working, they switch-it-up. The moments that use "Morbid," "Self-Deprecating," and "Farce" humor are kept to a minimum, which I appreciate. I found it much easier to bridge my disbelief of the entire movie with the smooth and timely transitions between comedy genres.

Don't let the popularity of this movie affect your decision to see this movie. I highly recommend it for anyone who isn't afraid to put the unlikeliness of Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston aside.

I don't care for Horror/Slasher movies, but heard this had humor (not to mention the lack of decent sounding movies at the box office). It moved quickly and didn't try and "get you" every couple minutes. The gore wasn't too bad - I'm not a fan of gore. The suspension of disbelief wasn't too bad. The acting and characters seemed good. The ending was done well too. The only negatives I see is the predictability of a lot of the stuff and the stretches in belief that did occur. Also, there was humor, I think they could have added a little more.
