    The movie is pleasant. It's reasonably funny. But the one who gets the real laughs here, the hard laughs, is Carrey, who plays the kind of role he should be playing - a complete lunatic. show more

    What might have been an entertaining, silly comedy opts for pseudo-earnestness over movie magic. show more

    I was expecting many more laughs. Yet, a decent movie. Probably not something I will watch again. Several scenes where I had expected a build-up of laughs completely missed the point.
