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.

Cannot figure out why this cast even showed up for work. One of the worst movies of the year. Even their make up was botched. What the heck happened ?

The movie had a good theme and an all-star cast. The old school Steve Carell was juxtapositioned against the new school Jim Carey. The theme was the coarsening of society. The cast and acting were good. The only weakness was that the material just wasn't funny enough.

The movie was only funny when Jim Carrey was on screen. When he was not on screen, the film was dull and boring and not funny at all. Wait for cable.
