I thought this looked very funny so I pre-ordered it from amazon. It will be the first DVD that I have bought without ever seeing the movie. I know it isn't out until Tuesday, so all I am asking for is a short review of the movie itself. Thanks.

This is a good film. It has a good cast and a good story. I don't know her name but the aspiring assasin really steals the show.

This movie was a lot better than I expected. I thought it was good and would consider buying the DVD.

Both Willis' and Perry's performances were what you expected from their past characterizations. There is enough twists in the movie to keep you interested all the way thorugh the end.

rented this over the weekend & i really enjoyed. it is not a laugh a minute movie but it has some pretty funny parts.

story is interesting & Amanda Peet gets nekked!

be sure to watch the interviews on the dvd. Perry's interview talking about Willis is hilarious.

i did not listen to the commentary so i do not know how it is. definitely worth a rental!

I thought it was a pretty mediocre comedy, but it was watchable. Would it kill Matthew Perry to act like a character OTHER than Chandler, however?

The DVD provides pretty good picture and very strong sound; the supplements are sparse but decent.

This movie was horrible. The acting is cheesy(Matthew Perry, what a surprise), Bruce Willis sucked as usual. This movie was not funny at all.

surprised me. I like it more than I thought I would. It's pretty kooky. Best scene's the fart. Just so random.

Shouldn't you have said:

This movie was horrible, was horrible. The acting is cheesy(Matthew Perry, what a surprise), Bruce Willis sucked as usual, as usual. This movie was not funny at all, not funny at all.

Now I wish that was my username.

As far as the movie goes, I liked it a lot.
I never watch Friends so Perry's acting seemed fine to me. I must admit, I am a big Bruce Willis fan, hell I even loved Hudson Hawk. And Amanda Peet is damn_fine.
