The book was great. This movie is an hour and a half of crap. It's basically a chick flick with a couple lines from the book thrown into the dialog. Over half of the movie is his friends telling him to grow up and him trying to change to become a better person so his friends will talk to him again. It's just one long disappointing chick flick that didn't contain a single funny moment. The plot and story line suck, the acting sucks, and the camera work sucks. This movie didn't have one redeemable quality.
I can't figure out how they could take such a great and hilarious book and make a heaping pile of crap that's suppose to be based on it. If someone knows please tell me. And I'd love to hear from tucker about this, I have now doubt that both he and his publicist read all these reviews. And here's a little piece of info for tucker, the movie didn't do poorly because of poor advertisement. It bombed because it SUCKED!!! Just like the new book.
The book is hilarious. Chapter after chapter, young master Max hits and quits girl after girl. He's a genuinely funny narrator, even if you can't really feel any sympathy for him or his plight (even his humiliation at wildly defecating across a hotel lobby). He's a cad. And proud of it.
So now they tried to adapt this master work of hedonism to film.
The first thing I notice: the women are human. They're even smart and capable of taking on Tucker and his jibes and ruses. This was not in the book. He goes through woman after woman and they all appear to be suckers for his scams. So when one of the strippers becomes a quick-witted single mom I was falling in love with...I forgot where this movie came from. The movie forgot where it came from.
But it does make nice points and ties things up rather tidily, something I wondered how they could do with this wild man's life.
(The hotel lobby scene--featuring Traci Lords!--is, for me, the funniest part of the movie and I laughed so hard, I cried. The rest...not so much. Check out the book for the real deal!)
The acting is just terrible. It looks like these guys are just reading off cue-cards with no feeling whatsoever. Furthermore, the voices just don't match what you are seeing on the screen its like a Japanese B-movie.
On to the content: in the ten minutes there were at least 40 one-liners that were supposed to get laughs. I did not laugh at one of them, not a chuckle. Not even an internal thought of "that was funny".
Maybe the movie picks up after the first ten minutes or so, but after witnessing what I did there was no way I was going to take the risk that the rest would be just as awful.
