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.

This movie will take you through a range of emotions. There a plenty of laugh out loud moments, and there's an excellent message or two in there, too. Alan Arkin's character is excellent, and of course Olivia Wilde plays her character quite well. And she's wonderful to look at, too. Jim Carrey is an absolute hoot. This is a clean movie, too, so tweens and up should enjoy this. All in all, excellent entertainment.

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 ?

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.
