This movie was OK. Good performances but the movie itself was just so so. It wasn't terrible... I laughed. But I also won't be quoting this movie for years to come. It was kind of like eating a plain water cracker... I know I put something in my mouth but I wont' remember that I did it 2 days later.

Really the 4 other people in the theatre didn't get the memo either about how bad this movie is and a few chuckles but nothing to laugh at except that I actually sat through the whole move expecting something good to see.
Yes the very large theatre was empty.

We had high hopes and they were not met---be forewarned, the preview trailers show almost all the best parts of the movie, except for the last 10 minutes. Jim Carrey's character is atrocious and not at all funny. The teenagers in front of us seemed to really enjoy Carrey's ridiculous stunts, when they weren't mauling each other. Olivia Wilde is quite likable. What happened to Gandolfini---still channeling Tony Soprano, but just going through the motions?
You're not missing anything. If you feel the need to see it, wait for it to be on video--that will happen very quickly, as it's not going to be in the theaters for long, nor will it be one that gets any repeat viewers.

I'm not a Steve Carell fan, and this movie did nothing to make me feel otherwise. It was a tired and depressing story, and that led to an implausible ending. Jim Carrey and Olivia Wilde (formerly in the House series) had decent performances, but they couldn't make up for a bad plot and two unconvincing lead actors (Carell and Buscemi). Save your money for a movie that instead will star Carrey and Wilde.
