The acting is as bad as the writing - crap, crap, and more crap.
For the sake of us all, don't buy this movie - you'll only encourage them to make more and they aren't worth the plastic they're printed on.
I'm sure that they'll take you back. You'll be back in your golden cabana boy briefs in no time.
Its a win for the viewer!
Okay... moving on.
The lineup of spoofed films is as follows (I admit I may have missed a few during my boredom coma):
-40 Year Old Virgin
-Forgetting Sarah Marshall
-Superbad (changing McLovin's name to McAnalovin is juvenile, but funny)
-The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
There were only two parts of the movie I actually enjoyed. First is a remake of the Dos Equis commercial with "The Most Interesting Man in the World." Funny stuff. The second is during the credits when they take a shot at the Verizon "Can you hear me now" commercials, which caused me to laugh out loud...something that didn't happen much during the actual movie.
The supporting actors are actually the best part of this film. Callen gets completely overshadowed by Steven Sims, who may as well be a Jonah Hill surrogate, by Austin Michael Scott, who did his McLovin impersonation once before in Disaster Movie, and by a brilliant performance by Stephen Kramer Glickman, who absolutely nails the Seth Rogan impersonation. (Unrelated: Glickman got a big break by coming on stage during a Jeffrey Ross standup routine)
Among the many problems with this movie is the simple fact that it's not funny, and I'm nearly the exact target audience. It's not the material. It's the execution...to which I'll add, I'm in favor of it.
Besides Judd Apatow flicks, some other movies alluded to in this spoof are "Slumdog Millionaire" (McAnalovin has to jump into poo and the film finishes up with a "She's a Ho" instead of "Jai Ho" dance number), "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button", Verizon Wireless ("Can you hear me now?"), and the Most Interesting Man Beer commercials.
As far as spoof comedy goes, at least the story flows ok. Sometimes spoofs are just stories and sometimes they are just minor skits loosely stuck together and this one does blend both of those formats well to incorporate outside the genre jokes as well as this tribute to Judd Apatow's brand of romantic comedy. Everything about it is extreme and gross-out humor, swearing, and sexual humor abounds. Very silly, but better than some of the stretched out spoof films out there like "Date Movie" or any "Scary Movie" after the first one. Some of the humor is REALLY nasty, but there is an audience out there for it that would like it.Read more ›

I thought it would be somewhat amusing since I liked all the other movies and who doesn't like a good spoof?Published 5 months ago by matt brooks
Hilarious spoof movie. It gets 3 stars because it does drag on a little too long and loses its appeal about halfway through.Published 9 months ago by Scott Wadsworth
This movie was bad. With it being a parody I expected a lot more funniness. Unfortunately I was left wanting, no needing a good laugh.Published 17 months ago by Brian Leinhauser
The issue is not about this movie being funny because it wasn't, rather it's about having way too many great movies to spoof successfully. Read morePublished 22 months ago by M. Hobbs
