One review

  • Extremely disappointing film for what could have been a very good movie for both young and old audiences. This is just one more film that Hollywood messed up. I brought my family hoping that the film would some way emulate the the character upon which the film is supposed to be based on. I knew that it was PG-13, but I naively hoped the rating was with reference to the violence (like in Lord of the Rings)rather than the language.

    The first five minutes is filled with so much vulgarity that I almost walked out of the film. Throughout the rest of the movie the vulgar language continued though not to the intensity of the first five minutes.

    The acting was okay. Seth Rogan was well…Seth Rogan. What more can you expect? I kept hoping that he would show some hint of good acting. But alas, no Oscars anytime soon for that dude, probably never.

    Jay Chou has some promise and there are instances of fair acting. Too bad you couldn’t understand everything he said. Maybe they forgot the subtitles. I think he could do well in more serious and well written roles.

    Cameron Diaz – this was worse than her performance in Charlie’s Angels, believe it or not.

    Don’t waste your money, don’t rent the video, don’t even watch this for free. You’d be better off watching the 60’s reruns.
