| A Massive Miscalculation
As I'm in Los Angeles at the moment, I was overwhelmed by the amount of publicity. If you switch on the TV there's bound to be a clip of the movie telling us, how funny the movie is. So, can you imagine the surprise. The film is remarkably "unfunny" Didn't the marketing geniuses knew that we were going to find out. Were they just trying to make a killing at the box office for the opening week end? Knowing that this thing couldn't possibly have legs, presumably that was the strategy but, I think that if they had been more honest about what they were selling, the movie could have more of a chance with a knowing audience. How infuriating! I saw it at the great Arclight theaters in Hollywood, a full house with only scattered giggles every so often. I must confess I don't get Steve Carrell. A comic genius? A comic wonder? Please! When we finally get to the actual dinner, the premise gets contradicted immediately and the whole thing becomes a total confusing mess. There are a couple of good moments and Paul Rudd, that's why 4 out of 10 and not a resounding 1.
