    The funniest movie I've seen since the Wedding Crashers, and equally irreverent! Watched on a flight and the woman next to me kept trying to figure out why I was laughing so hard.
  • Crazy Funny!!!

    I rented this movie but did not have time to watch it before my time expired on itunes. Movie was so bad, I have no intention of re-renting just to find out how it ended.

    It was just bad. Another example of Hollywood going waaaay over the top trying to out do other movies. Don't waste your $ or even worse, don't waste your time. I didn't even finish it.
  • Best movie ever

    my daughter and I watch it on the plane to singapore. It was sooo funny. Daughter is an adult so wouldn't let a child watch it. Some bad words but at the right time. I could have done without the F word but it seems to be very poplar in today movies.
  • Much better than we thought it'd be

    Could have been funnier and many parts were dirty just for the sake of being dirty. Sometimes you have to go beyond a sex joke and actually have some humor...

    I honestly dont see why people liked this movie so much..its not a very entertaining movie, it just seemed like dry humor. Upsetting since bryan cranston and james franco are great actors, i just didnt really enjoy the movie overall..
  • Hilarious !!!
