I didn't see this movie in the theater in part because I can take or leave the Farrelly brothers. However, I just rented it from Netflix as I'm recovering from surgery and am housebound.

If it cannot make a good impression on me after 5 then why waste 113 more minutes.

Also, Ben Stiller was in it and i had always liekd ben stillers movies-they were funny. However once the movie ended i was in shock-it was a dispicable movie that could have damaged and twisted anyones thought process. the movies' comedy was a joke-resorting
