I'm sorry, I love this kind of crass, rude, (sexist) humor, I really do, I literally cannot help myself. I'm also partial to about half the cast. Give me Kristen Wiig yelling "man balls!" any day and I am so there.
This had all the ingredients, but instead of making "Shaun Of The Dead" a run for its money, this is dumbed down to work for as many people as possible instead of treating the viewers like intelligent beasts. All in all: a plethora of one-liners and seemingly Simon Pegg's try to get to know the SNL cast. It may have worked, but the film's bad.
Doesn't deserve its maligned reputation as the film is actually quite enjoyable just not up to the expectations that "Shaun" and "Fuzz" created. Mottola does an adequate job between send-up and buddy comedy guiding good comic performances from Pegg/Frost, Wigg and Bateman. Some fun dialogue, some laugh out loud moments and a well cast Seth Rogen as the voice of Paul.
Simon Pegg! Nick Frost! San Diego ComicCon!...CGI Alien...voiced by...Seth Rogen...not directed by Edgar Wright. It shows. You better watch "Shaun of The Dead" again than waste your time and eyesight on this one...those dorky G-Men characters were kinda funny, though.
