Entertaining and funny. That is unless you're a prudish jack ash

Horrid, disgusting, and stupid

This is an awful film. I'm not going to review any more about it. Parents: If, for some extremely aberrant reason, you find yourself or your child watching this film, be forewarned: it's gross, raunchy and vulgar all-around. Bottom Line: Why spoof comedies? There's really no need. Thanks for reading! - Movie Man

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (4 ):

This movie totally fails as a spoof of the Judd Apatow movies, because it fails to comment upon them in any way. It merely re-creates a few of their most famous scenes, with new "punchlines," often involving sexual images or throwing around a few "f" bombs. Likewise, the Apatow movies employed humor based in human emotions, but here the humor is all shock-related. It just tries to see how naughty it can be.

Of course, it's possible for movies to be naughty and good at the same time -- the Apatow movies, for example -- but this movie is mainly insulting, unfunny, vile, and irritating. There's no joy in its bad behavior... just badness.
