Consensus: NATM has some funny moments, but the movie requires the audience to have familiarity with the movies being spoofed and a tolerance for toilet and sexual humor to be truly effective.

More often than not you'll be groaning from painful recognition rather than actually laughing.

Uses the unwelcome Scary Movie method of spoof comedy, in which timing is ignored and jokes are prolonged and beaten to the point where they're just obvious, not funny.
