I was kind of anticipating this movie, I imagine I had the same thoughts as most people the first time they heard about it. Steve Carell and Tina Fey, how can this fail? It’s going to be great! Besides the stars of the film the rest of the cast is pretty padded, you’ll find Common, Mark Wahlberg, Ray Liotta, James Franco, Mila Kunis, and William Fichtner. Some fans of The League and Always Sunny in Philadelphia might notice some familiar faces as well. First thing you hear in the movie is the Ramones, off to a good start. From there it basically flattens out, there are some highlights, a few laughs just not a lot, It’s enjoyable, not bad but it does sort of fall flat. It’s just not as good as it should be with the cast at hand. Ultimately what we’ve got is sort of an extreme romantic comedy with action and a married couple. This is more of the type of movie you turn on when you’re laying on the couch on a lazy Wednesday afternoon flipping through channels. During the credits there are outtakes, most of which are the best parts of the movie.
