Ridiculous comedies can be fine, but the ones that matter creep up close to the truth. This one lives in it.

One of the funniest movies to come out in a few years! It was funnier than 40 year old virgin and very close to being as funny as Wedding Crashers. If you liked either of those movies this is a must...

R-Rating for a Reason

By nycshoop007
I don't always agree with the MPAA ratings, but this movie REALLY deserved what it got- R - sexual content, drug use and language. I was appalled how many folks showed up with kids last night. ...

I haven't laughed that hard while being creeped out in a long time
