    I wish someone would explain to me why the critics all kiss Judd Crapanow\' butt. Seriously, his movies are al the worst possible trash. The reviews must be rigged I cannot think of any other possible explanation. They all make tons of money and the reviews are rigged ! The lowest form of funny..15 penis jokes and thats your basic Judd Capanow film !
