Is it any good. The dvdtalk review says it is really bad, but I would like another opinion. It looks stupid, but I like stupid movies as long as they are funny. Hell, I even liked Joe Dirt.

I fairly enjoyed the film - its a decent comedy with a few great laughs. If you're interested, I'd say rent it

If you check your brain at the door, and are willing to accept some really bad humor to get to some funny stuff, it's worth checking out. I had a few LOL moments (although I was the only one laughing in the theater, so take it for what it's worth). FWIW, I thought it was funnier than Joe Dirt.

It's a really horrible movie, disappointing considering Falk and Kattan are normally really funny. When I heard the premise and saw the trailer, I thought it could deliver as a good comedy.

Yeah, it's got a plot, but it's completely bogged down but dumb comedy (fart jokes, sight gags, gay jokes, etc.) that is just not even funny. I certainly enjoy dumb comedy when it's funny, but this just isn't.

The DVD has flawless video and the audio was fine. Only extra was a 12-minute "cinema verite" thing where we see them making cinematic greatness on set and we get to see Chris Kattan do the farting scene again and again. Not even the trailer, though there is a trailer for Bubble Boy.

I'd say if you liked Joe Dirt, you would probably like it.
