Hilariously funny! A definite watch
For the longest time I passed the movie over because of all of the negative press it continued to receive. However I finally did see it, and it is amazingly funny.

I watched some of the interviews that I could find with the actors and really those who are against the movie really haven't gone to see it.

Yes, there are some parts that some people may find to be a little offensive, but if you can laugh at yourself, or your religion then I think you should see it. It's not like they try to pick on just one group of people.

Really I can't stress enough how much you should see this movie. Don't pass by it any longer. Be ready to laugh really hard.
