    Saw this in south jersey during opening eagles game and the theater was filled (granted with a lot of italians) but the movie got a lot of spontaneous laughs from the audience. I found this a cute, refreshing, entertaining movie that moviegoers would appreciate, maybe not outlandish enough for the critics, but quirky and fun. Jablonsky was lead material and endearing as the adorable but clueless jake and the other guys in the fish market were engaging too. The dialogue was naturally funny and clever without trying too hard. Got the impression that the audience thoroughly enjoyed the film.
