    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. This movie was terrible. I hated it. It depressed me. There were one or two funny moments, but overall, it is a bleak look at marriage, love and even life. Don't waste your time.

    I picked the movie because it was a "comedy"? This movie is about the worst I have seen. Too graphic, too much bad language, too little humor. On a 1 - 5 rating I give it a 0. After the first 5 minutes I was wondering if I wanted to watch it. I think that will be my marker for all movies from now on. If it cannot make a good impression on me after 5 then why waste 113 more minutes. Tasteless, tacky, trivial. Who needs to see so much bad expression of what and why people get married. If the younger audience gets there clues from movies then we are creating a clueless generation.

    I walked out. I can't imagine how bad the ending must have been, because the rest of it was so bad. Save your money.
