Loved It
Verified purchase
This was the comedy film I needed after having watched several others lately which just couldn't make me laugh. If you have seen and enjoyed films such as I Love You Man, Hangover and Bruce Almighty then you should have no problem getting into this film, featuring the same iconic comedy actors and the ridiculous but at times heartfelt comedy plot.
It's hard to believe it came out almost 9 years after myself having seen it and writing this review, it's a classic I'll hang next to the other great comedies which I'll most definitely watch again and would recommend that anyone give it a try if you haven't seen it already.

Hilarious, fresh, oh-so-funny film... with a heart!

In the words of John Lennon, "You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not." ~Barry

Mwahahahahah. I laughed so much (SPOILER: except for the horrific horror moment with the finger) at this film. It has so much heart. Well acted, well cast, really a great film to watch to wash away the muck of the evil sociopathic human dying world that we live in. Ignore the naysayers amopng reviewers.

Watchable, but not entertaining
Verified purchase
(2.5 stars) Paul Rudd is so humane as always - one of this generation's most under-rated actors. Just a shame the script really isn't up to much. Steve Carrell is annoying, but not in a charming way, and Rudd's love interest is weak. Overall, watchable, but not really entertaining.

Dreadful - embarrassingly bad
Verified purchase
Probably the worst film I've sat through for a long time. I watched it on the recommendation of a friend and I feel genuinely insulted that she thought my taste was so poor I would enjoy this rubbish. I'm told Carell is a funny guy but you'd never know from this. To be funny comedy needs a sense of reality - this is just a maudlin, predictable, unfunny mess.

The same premise was covered in just 30 minutes - and with infinitely more laughs - in an old episode of Citizen Smith. I wish that was available on Prime instead of this.

I shouldn't like it but I do

silly movie silly plot silly theme but it grew on me. The movie was able to give me a good perspective to look at life. Maybe the geeks and odd balls os the way to go to get true meaning in life and njoy what life has to offer. Ot was entertaining enough for me to have some good laughs /It was ok

Entertaining throughout
Verified purchase
Not a dull moment in this slightly awkward comedy. I thoroughly enjoyed this film with some genuinely funny parts, reasonable story line and cliched feel good ending. What is not to like about an entertaining hour and a half.

You can eat my pudding !

This a very very funny (and in some ways sweet) film, chock block with laugh out loud moments and wonderful cameos (some of them by funny British comedians). I would put this up there in the top five of film comedies. Surreal, quirky, and absurd, with the actual dinner one of the funniest scenes I have ever seen a movie. I would just advise not watching it on the train where you might be regarded with alarm by your fellow passengers as you laugh dementedly.

It's like watching a childrens comedy
Verified purchase
I usually love these guys but unfortunately this time they managed to make a film that annoys more than it does entertain.

Shame I really wanted to like it, but I could only make it 2/3 of the way though before shutting it off.
