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.

Pass - slow moving, not much fun, and a bit maudlin here and there. Best part: last 10 minutes.

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.

Horrible Burt Whateverstone

I am clueless how anyone has given this movie an even remotely decent review. Clearly those people either saw a different movie or they were on drugs when watching it. This was hands down the WORST WORST WORST film I have ever seen. Not a single scene was funny. It was incredibly stupid. Horrible script. I kept contemplating walking out of the move the entire time but didn't have to pay to see it kept hoping that maybe it would get better from how horrible it already was. Sad to see the usually funny Jim carrey in such a horrible movie that does him no good at all. Cause it WASNT funny!! Even if you don't have to pay to see it like me, DONT SEE IT! biggest waste of time I ever spent.

Waste of time and talent

I thought this might be funny – liking Steve Carell. This movie is so stupid as to be beyond The characters are unbelievable, the acting is bad, the story makes no sense, it was bad. It is hard to say anything positive about this movie. Avoid it at all costs. I don't know what they were thinking – it looks like they weren't thinking. Terrible, terrible, terrible
