Jesus, what am I doing with my life? Why did I sit through this movie? Oh, sure, the best gag did come in the last 20 minutes, but it was not worth all of that pain.
The way I would describe this movie is as a turd with corn in it. There are a few bits of promise that haven't been whittled away by the digestive system that is whatever satanic writers' room plotted this monstrosity. Neil Patrick Harris is fun, and Rob Corddry has some enjoyable moments, but it's 95% unbearable shit. It's the same milquetoast story seen in every other crappy comedy (Wayne's World, but without the likable characters and humour). Most of the gags are sex or bodily function-related, and while those things can be used for good jokes, sex and bodily functions on their own just aren't funny. The other jokes are mostly just bad. JohnnyDavidson put it best when describing them as akin to those of a bad sketch comedy show.
It's a disaster of biblical proportions and I want it wiped from my mind or from history. Either one works.
Not as good as the first. There are a lot of really lame gags that you would expect from a sketch comedy show or something. It's still a pretty fun movie. The scenes with Rob Corddry were hilarious.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
