So, we went in expecting a bit of profanity. Well, it surpasses "a bit" within the first 10 min. Crude language was used considerably in each scene, not to mention the dreaded "F" word being used as if the writers left their thesaurus at home & just used it when they couldn't think of a better adjective. As if that wasn't enough, there is a scene during the first 1/3 of the movie that I will not describe due to the graphic & disgusting nature of it. Just suffice it to say that there is no excuse for such filth in main stream movies. Humor-wise, it did have funny bits but it was beyond stupid & choppy & annoying in parts. All in all, I would say I'm pretty embarrassed to say I actually watched this.
So, would I recommend this film? Absolutely not. I think Brandie enjoyed it more than I did but I still thought it was quite a horrible waste of time & money. Having said that, as always, I did enjoy hanging out with my great friend, Brandie.
I think I'm going to start attempting to give these reviews a grade. "A" being a great movie; "B" being that it was definitely worthwhile; "C" being good but I probably wouldn't watch it again; "D" being I didn't enjoy it that much, it's pretty much a waste of time; "F" being terrible, hated it, one of the worst movies I've seen in a while. So I give this movie an .......... "F."
Discussion Questions from Christianity Today (if you actually go against this advice & decide to waste your time & money.):
1. The film's central theme is that of immaturity versus maturity, of the need to grow up and put childish things aside. Do you think that, by the end of the film, Brennan and Dale achieve this? Why or why not?
2. The ways in which Brennan and Dale are immature are obvious, but are there any regards in which Robert or Nancy need to grow up? Do you think they are good parents? Why or why not?
3. How does this movie treat divorce? Adultery? Does it have any positive messages about family? About forgiveness?
