This movie did have some really funny moments. Wahlberg was as funny as I thought he would be, even as the straight man in the comedic equation. Was it the funniest movie I have ever seen? Not by a mile. My viewing partner and I both said to each other as we left, “Still looking for that gut busting comedy this year.” This movie wasn’t it. I will give some kudos to Eva Mendes for a great performance playing Ferrell’s wife in the film. And some of the funnier parts were their interactions with each other. I wouldn’t run out to see it, but again if you are looking for something and Step Up 3D is sold out you should see it. (That’s a joke, in case you were wondering)
It might have been my experience at the theater that tainted the film for me. I was surrounded by the annoying laugher guy. (Sounds like a Adam Sandler skit) Look, I know people can’t help how they laugh no more than they can help how their shit smells. But I had one on my right and behind me. So, in between getting kicked in the back of the head and the guy beside me having a seizure every time something was remotely funny, it was hard to concentrate. But I digress.
On a side note, the preview for JackAss 3D looked to be funny. Those guys are straight crazy. Also saw another preview for the Facebook movie that is coming out in a few months. From the previews, that looks like a movie I wouldn’t mind seeing.
