This movie has turned into one of my favorite comedies. Jason Bateman gives a great performance, love the way he can do drama and be funny at the same time. All of the actors were great actually. I can see this movie again and again and laugh every single time.
Funny from beginning to end! Just when you think you know how it is going to end there is yet another twist. Great movie to have in the collection of comedies. Great acting and a really good storyline.
this is such an amazing party movie to watch with friends. it is an absolute surprise how funny this movie was. Most jason bateman movies are a little subpar and lean on romcom tropes too much. But this one is legitimate funny and I've watched it twice its so good. I highly recommmend it.
This movie is so much better and funnier than the previews made it out to be. Comedies tend to be hit or miss but in this case, this solid cast brings their “A” game to a story that is different enough to give us plenty of laughs per minute. Overall, it’s worth watching!
Love this movie. It's exactly my kind of comedy. I will say this Blu-ray does NOT come with a digital copy, so if that's something you need, you won't find it here. If you use Vudu though, you can scan the ISBN code on the back and pay $2.00 for a digital copy. I would definitely recommend the $6 or $7 for this movie. Totally worth it.
The movie itself is a joy. It really surprised me how much I laughed at this modern comedy. In an age where comedy is reduced to hating characters, being mean, and just gross out humor it was a breath of fresh air to see actually well thought out jokes. Each character is enjoyable and to an extant lovable. They each fail, but not because they're being picked on, or mean, but because they're human. There's one joke that cracks me up every single time that I replay, and all I'll say is that it involves money.
Because I enjoyed the movie so much I was very intrigued about the special features. Sadly, it was lackluster. No commentary, a "making of" that is mostly cast interviews with the most generic questions, and a gag reel that was actually entertaining.
I'll totally recommend this to any and everybody. I'll fly to New York and talk to every person that passes me by about how good this movie is, but if you wanted more out of your movie experience you'll only find a nice gag reel.
