Yes, it is June and I am posting about movies I saw as far back as March. Trying to get caught up this weekend! We shall see…
There are two movies here. There is a sweet, intelligent comedy saying some interesting things and exploring characters you might like to see more of. And then there is the really, really stupid movie about the stupidest dumb jokes you’ve ever heard and some of the worst physical comedy you’ve ever seen onscreen.
The sweet intelligent comedy is completely dragged down and destroyed by the stupid not-funny parts and unless you are into “setting your fart on fire” (literally) comedy, you wil find yourself very disappointed by what could have been but wasn’t.
They could have cut John C. Reilly’s entire part and that would immediately make this movie far more enjoyable and better-written.
