Rating: Didn’t Suck
Some stories would make a great half hour episode of a TV show, but somehow Hollywood decides they’re going to drag it out for a full hour and a half. Honestly, I was bored quite often watching this movie. The ending is the funniest part of the entire thing. When I say ending, I mean like the last five minutes. The beginning is boring and the middle is just okay. There are some funny parts that I laughed out loud to, but nothing where I felt it was something worth dishing money out for. When asked, people said they liked the movie, but there was very little “recapping” going on, ya know what I mean? Usually when people like a movie they talk and talk and talk about it after they see it, but it was basically a shrug and a “Yeah, it wasn’t bad” when I asked them what they thought. So it’s pretty bland across the board.
What you may not like:
-The Story Drags
-The actors really aren’t that funny, the funniest one gets little screen time
-The concept of the entire movie is not as gripping in modern society as I think the makers were hoping.
-Half the movie is just telling men how they’re losers and that’s why they got married because they couldn’t make it in the dating world (no that’s not the focus of the movie, I didn’t ruin anything for you, it’s just a theme in the background)
What you may like:
-A few very funny parts
-A great ending
-Some hot chicks
-Women may think it’s funnier than men because they joke about how much guys don’t realize they’re losers
Overall? Is it worth spending 8-10 bucks at the theater? Not at all. If you’re dying to see it, do it on discount at a matinée or dirt mall theater. Otherwise, you’ll be glad you waited for it on Netflix or redbox do people still use Blockbuster? Anyway. $2-$6 in the theater, $3-$8 on DVD.
What’d you think?
