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

Withour Alan Arkin, this movie would have been a bust. Jim Carrey was absolutely pitiful and sado-masochistic in his role...nothing funny there. Steve Carell was amusing as well as Buscemi, but the movie grew tiresome, although there were a few genuine moments of pleasure when Carell was entertaining young children at a birthday party, and the opening sequence was promising...Overall, I give the movie **1/2 stars only because of Arkin and his comedic presence and lifting up a dreary script.

Disappointed

I like Steve Carell in general so was really looking forward to this fim. As it began I kept waiting for the funny parts to happen. I waited and waited. I even waited some more. There were a couple parts that got a chuckle but, overall, it was a dud. The writing was poor. There just seemed to be very little for him to be funny about. There were a few teenage girls that laughed a few times in the theater but I think they were laughing about something else. Swing and a miss.

Really funny movie with a great cast. Could've been done better but I would absolutely recommend this.
