I'll elaborate. I don't like movies where the main purpose is to get laid. That was a very conscience decision on my part and kids don't need any more pressure in that department than they already have.

I also can't stand movies where people have to act idiotic for a joke. Give me witty and clever jokes any day over crap like that.

.

It's hard for me to imagine that any non-pron movie could add one iota to the teenage desire to get laid. A few jokes might even distract them for a few seconds.

Bettter sex than violence, imho.

But, I haven't seen this movie. I love the title and funk references in the clips.

Was one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Got it and "HOTROD" the same night. I think it was just as bad.

This sounds like another Napolean Dynamite sort of film. Stupid, but you never forget the lines.

I forgot the lines, but remember the physical comedy. The scene where Napoleon punches the uncle, climbs the fence and falls over the other side. Hilarious.

You got the stupid part right.

Napoleon Dynamite is an Oscar winner compared to this crap. HOTROD

I'm in the middle of watching it on youtube. I'm liking it better than Nap Dyno, but not as funny as Big Daddy.

I was not impressed, but being one of the best movies of 2007 isn't saying much either, so I won't argue with you.

I'll have to agree with air. I'm so over watching movies where it's about guys and girls screwing. If I want sex with comedy, I'll record myself one night attempting to make love to my wife.

I'm telling ya, I posses all the adolescent awkwardness and sexual inexperience of a teenage Mormon missionary. Our nights of passion (and I use that term loosely) end with cramps, apologies, and the feelings of resentment.

I recommend this movie for all the scenes of Mclovin and the cops.

It was soooo bad that my wife and I watched 18 minutes of it at regular speed and had to fast-forwarded it at 10x speed on the DVD player just to be able to say we watched it.

Now, I know that my wife and I are slightly out of the target audience for the genre, but even when we were at that point in our lives we thought that stuff was horrible. But, we thought we would give it a chance.

It was so unimaginative, unoriginal, and non-creative that I can't believe it made it as far as it did (i.e. completed).

Just my opinion, of course, though I have no problem sharing it!!

Come on, that movie could have been written by a ******** elephant, or maybe it was.
Calling it the best movie of 2007 is just sad.

YES! I wasn't too sure about the movie but it kind of grew on me the longer it went on. the whole Mclovin bit was pretty funny. There is some good stuff in there if you can make it through the initial raunchiness. Funny, but it can't beat Super Troopers for silliness, though!
