“I wasnu0026#39;t really wowed by this film.It doesnu0026#39;t really have a captivating story,great scenery or great special effects (the latter is never really necessary anyway).What you have is a group of guys,each of them representing someone most of us know or have heard of.We are introduced to them,and over the course of the film,we get to know them,and by filmu0026#39;s end,we had an overall pleasant time.The film has a place on the AFIu0026#39;s 100 Years,100 Laughs list,which brought me to watch it.I donu0026#39;t question itu0026#39;s placement there because we all have different senses of humor,but I canu0026#39;t say that it really generated a lot of laughs for me personally.Overall,it was enjoyable enough and I may visit it again one day.”
