Ok, so who's seen this?

It was decent. It played out just as I suspected, though, where all the funniest parts were in the trailer and it was overmarketed to the point that by the time I saw the movie, the funny parts were already old hat.

But other than that, it was still a fun movie. Don't see why there's a bunch of hype. I guess because it's actually an original movie for a change.

All in all, though, I thought it was fun.

It manages to mix multiple genres together and it's funny (unlike that Will Ferrell big budget crap) -- buddy movies, road trip, mystery, gross-out sex comedy, romcom... plus they actually hired good writers instead of overpaying the actors or special effects.

Here's some background stories on the making of the film:

I saw it back in February, when I hadn't a clue what I was watching. I thought it was hilarious. I agree they gave away too much in the trailers -- in fact, I was right out disappointed because even though people are enjoying themselves in the film, it could have played out a lot funnier without some of the best surprises - like the tiger - in the trailers.

I thought it was pretty funny.
A little shocking at the end. I was expecting nudity, but definitely not that.
