Idiotic, describes it all.

I feel like an idiot for wasting money and time on this movie. With some decent characters and acting but the storyline, just got dumber and dumber. There was a few laugh at parts but nothing worth telling my friends about. All in all Typical stoner type movie, with a family twist.

Too much sex
