    Tina Fey & Paul Rudd were probably as bored with making this movie as I was watching it.

    I had hopes that this would be at least mildly entertaining, since I really get tired of the very offensive R movies. I do like the actors, but they really must have had nothing else to do to be bothered with this one. Almost left out of boredom. No stars.
