User Reviews: This is a mediocre comedy with a ridiculously stacked cast. Not since Movie 43 have there been so many great actors in a comedy that is just plain not funny. Although in this case it is not because the film is outlandish and crude, it is just kind of dull. The stellar actors in this movie get nothing to do for the most part and it reads more like a paint-by-numbers early 2000s comedy where it seems to be giving out scudo-philosophies on life, while mostly getting things wrong and not really saying much of anything of actual note.

Here is the thing though, it’s a film about the compromises that promising people make for money and what is expected of them and when you look at the cast and the quality of the film you realise that it is a perfect metaphor for the themes of the movie. Did the filmmaker intend to send a message about the compromise of growing up and working with the movie itself?! If so then it is a subversive masterpiece that they slipped by studios to become a real life example of the modern day problems it is supposed to highlight.

Overall I don’t think this is actually the case, you can still take it as an example of how great actors get roped into doing a bland script through promise of money and meaning, but apart from that it is only one to watch for the cast, just don’t expect to laugh or really feel much of anything by the end. Solid ‘Eh’.
