It's not that the movie is utterly bereft of arresting moments. It's just that each of these prominently features one of the aforementioned supporting cast and not the so-called star.

When the writer's this far off, the actors and the audience pay the price.

David Cornelius

The film is as grating as the people who inhabit it.

Rick Groen
Globe and Mail

Matters quickly regress into an antic romantic comedy, potentially buoyed by a strong cast but soon thwarted by a screenplay as leaden as it is predictable.

Urban Cinefile

Ana Faris is the best thing in this predictable, often silly Jon Heder movie about a spoilt son trying to sabotage his mother's new relationship

Brian Orndorf

The picture is merely series of loose gags stumbling into each other while Heder makes faces, Hamilton spends more time on his soundtrack selections than his storytelling, as the rest of the cast waits patiently for their paychecks to clear.

It's an ok movie to see when you have nothing to do, you will laugh sometimes but that's about it. A twenty-nine year-old slacker who lives with his… More
