    I'm an over 70 year old mom and grandmom, and one time huge fan of Blazing Saddles. Although some of the bits were over the top raunchy, the humor and political satire were very, very funny. Some slow parts, but giggles throughout. Much more clever and sophisticated than other reviews would leed you to believe.

    I loved Ted so, I thought I'd give this one a try. It wasn't funny, it was just plain stupid. I'd guess that if I were a 16 year-old teenager I may have found it to be funny...don't waste your money!
