Not funny enough

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.

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.

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.

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

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 ?
