Funny but lowest common denominator

My kids and I watched Splitting Adam this weekend after seeing ads and recording it on our DVR. We all thought it was pretty funny. The message, that all the good qualities Adam wanted to have were in fact within him, was a good one that the movie made clear. But it wasn't the highest quality movie Nick ever made. The difference between some of the clones was vague (party Adam and caveman Adam looked and acted a lot alike, which I don't think was an intentional commentary but just lack of finesse). The potty humor wasn't even funny. And the main character looks 13 but drives? Works multiple jobs and can pay for a nice dinner out? It didn't compute. Targeted at the middle elementary age group, but still fun for a broader range.
