It's impossible not to sympathize at least a little bit with Jack and Ben, if for no other reason than their exceedingly naïve view of the world. They're forever aghast at what they see as their parents' selfishness and horrified at the idea of being kicked out of the nest. Get a job? Find a place to live? How can they manage to do that and launch a successful film career? Their quandary makes for a hilarious comedy that pokes fun at both the delusional 20-somethings and their long-suffering parents.

With the likes of Cuba Gooding Jr. and Ben Stiller slated for guest spots, and Anfanger and Jacobson absolutely nailing the roles of blissful reliance, Big Time in Hollywood, FL is a laugh-out-loud comedy for the older teen and grown-up crowd. It doesn't set out to comment on a societal trend or further enable the characters' mooching; it's just meant to tickle the funny bone. Yes, the laughs are mostly brainless and totally outlandish, but if you don't think too hard about it, you'll really enjoy the ride.
