It was fun, funny, uplifting and a better script, character development and story line than I thought it would be. Enjoyed it thoroughly. Glad we went!

It was a good movie to laugh to. I did not want to see a heavy movie and this just hit the spot. Good laughs, nice story, good acting.

What an original well written script. Vince Vaughn did an great job! I wasn't expecting this to be such a heartwarming feel good movie but I was pleasantly surprised. I laughed and cried.

This movie was actually quite funny and also heartwarming too. We can all relate to at least one of the significant characters in the film and they touched us, we were embarrassed for them and mostly we just laughed out loud. Vince did a believable job and his brothers and fathers and kids were all very well cast. It was the funniest movie I've seen since the Heat. Its a date movie, a family movie or an "I need to stop crying about my life and laugh" movie.

The premise of this movie is cool, but the execution is sophomoric. I won't be specific for the benefit of those who want to see it. However, when an illogical plot element is so glaring that I immediately caught it, that indicates that the writer and producers assume the audiences are idiots who don't pay attention to details. The character of Ryan was unable to be a party to the lawsuit. Enough said.
It has it's humorous and heart-tugging moments, but it is a shame that a premise this good is marred by inconsistencies and glaring omissions. Where is the wife of Chris Pratt's character? She is never mentioned. How did a disbarred attorney end up being a caregiver to four toddlers? What the hell?
The only time worth viewing this is when it comes to regular cable, not pay-per-view. A major waste,
