  • If I could put a negative score on this movie I would! It’s so sad that I can’t get back the wasted time I spent on watching this movie!! I almost asked for my money back and some compensation for ruining my evening but I didn’t pay for it. This movie is like being mind raped for it’s run at racism, incest and bestiality. I hope that I will never experience a movie like this for as long as I live. With that said, there were topics and views that I could not avoid laughing my a** off about. All things taboo were exploited and a bit down right disgusting. I can’t wait to wash the *ick off. The only real comedy I found was the soon to be famous scenes about Halle Berry and the blind date guacamole fiasco. These actors must be really struggling and strapped for cash in order to degrade themselves in this level of depravity that this movie depicts. I was disheartened to find some of my favorite actors in this film, to which I now look down on them with shame. I understand times are tough but jeez, have a level of class and a sense of morals. Obviously, they can get away with just about anything in Hollywood if a production company was willing to make this movie and foot the bill for these overpaid actors.

  • Everybody is speaking about the “WTF”-level this movie has.
    Yep, I had that too after a while : “What The Fuck” am I actually watching ….
    The fact that such a star cast joins this is twofold (I think):

    1. They probably are paid a disgusting lot of money for their momentary cooperation
    2. If completely unknown nobodies would be in this movie, it wouldn’t even get in the cinema. In other words the marketing department knew what it was doing.
    If it was the intention to bring anarchic absurd humor on the screen, than this wasn’t a real big succes. “The Young Ones” is pure anarchism and “Monty Python” is an epitome of absurdity. This was just a cocktail of vulgar poop and pee humor, laced with sexual trivia. From Halle Berry’s bloated hooters to the testicles on Hugh Jackman’s throat, the iBabe with Richard Gere and the prose about the pubic hair of Kristen Bell. The fart and flying shit scene in “Dumb and Dumber” was hilarious. Here it was just … uh … plain shit.
    Why the hell did I watch the complete movie ? Because I was wondering if it might be better in the following sketch or the quality would even drop more. The bloopers in the credits was a high point.
    PS. I must admit that for a moment a smile appeared at the Tampax advertising
