I wanted to love this movie but....
I was looking forward to seeing this one, being a big fan of the sort-of-first one. The two characters I thought would be strong enough to make this movie work but for some reason it just didn't come together. If you saw Funny People, you know what I'm talking about. You will be parked in your semi-comfortable theatre seat for 2-plus hours, and about halfway through this movie you find yourself looking at your watch wanting it to end. Maybe it was just a little too much depth into the lives of this family, or maybe it was just the ending which really wasn't an ending as it seemed to make one too many turns as the movie was winding down. Either way, there are some great performances from Chris O'dowd and Jason Segel but they are bit parts that just don't keep it interesting enough. Last note, maybe if you have kids you will find this a little more entertaining but if not you may find yourself just waiting for it to end. Sorry Judd, I'll still see the next one you come out with.
