Studio: Columbia Pictures
Rated: R (For sexual content, nudity, language and some drug use)
By the end of the film the movie changes gears and wants to make Elizabeth nice, which is not only unthinkable, but it’s not funny. It’s not daring. This movie wants to be challenging only until it can’t think of what else to do, and revert back to a standard matinee comedy. Imagine my shock to discover that Jake Kasdan directed this mess. No, he’s not a spectacular director by any means, but he directed two other black comedies: “Orange County” and “Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story.” Both those films were much smarter and funnier than this piece of garbage is. I know numerically I have to give this film a star grade, but if I were a movie teacher this film would be given a big fat F.
Parents, there is some strong language and many sexual references. Recommended for ages 17 and up.
