Advantages: Characters work well together
Disadvantages: The jokes don't always hit
I wasn't expecting to enjoy this film at all and was all set to be telling people to avoid it like the plague. However I can't in all honesty slag this film off. For a comedy of its type, and all of you know what I mean by this coming of age sort of comedy, it had a lot of slow parts that weren't funny, and needless sentimentality that only served to slow the movie down. However, when it was funny, it really was funny. I watched it with a few of the lads and I think that does make a film of this sort seem funnier as you seem to feed off of one anothers laughter.
The ongoing gags were pretty notable, and performances were top notch, notably by Seth Green as the sarcastic Amish guy. As well as Clark Duke who's character Lance was hilarious and reminded us all of a friend of ours (i'm sure most people know people who remind them of characters in these films) which made it all the funnier. The energy between the various performers was right and helped execute most of the gags effectively. As I mentioned, I have complaints, but they are trivial.
If you want some brainless and light hearted humour to chill out with your mates then you could do a lot worse than this.
Summary: Funny and worth a watch
