Rating: Pretty Damn Good
Overall I think I enjoyed this movie more than most people, but it still did a good enough job of satisfying moviegoers that most who saw it felt it was worth the money. I think it’s worth paying the few bucks extra to see in 3D.
What you’ll like:
-Lots of funny parts
-Good Story line
-Unique twists you don’t see every day
What you may not like:
-Some of the humor is pretty dry and they reuse a few gags over and over
-Some of the dialogue is so “back and forthy” that you just want everyone to shut up
-It takes a little long for the movie to get warmed up, but it keeps its pace once it gets there
Overall, I think if you like Will Ferrell type comedy then you’ll enjoy the movie. Brad Pitt really doesn’t bring anything to the role, some people can act just by reading their lines into a microphone, other people need someone there to bounce off of. Case in point, Jonah Hill was very funny in his voice role.
Definitely something I think kids will enjoy while still being smart enough to keep the parents entertained. $14 or so for 3D, $10’s not really worth it for 2D, more like $8 or matinee price, I could see $20 for the DVD, especially if it comes with 3D glasses, maybe even $22-$24 w/glasses.
