I thought perhaps someone was laid-off their job or had a new years resolution to lose weight...

a few friends commented on it on FB and are basically saying it was one of the worst films ever made.

it's tanking pretty bad at the box office as well.
68 mill prod cost and 19mill domestic after about a month.

51% Rating on RT with a 25% fan rating.

That's uhm.... not good at all.

shrug...I hopped into the movie aware of the poor reviews with the intention of lambasting my nephew for his choice but was delightfully surprised. I hate Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig, and yet I thought it was really good.

The concept is certainly interesting, but I heard it was so bad that I won't go to the theatre to see it. Maybe when I can get it at home.

You're right. It's probably best watched on the small screen.

I''m a fan of his campaigns, but I know he has detractors throughout the lands.

I was so excited when I saw the trailer... was super bummed about the reviews

Is it fun bad? Or boring bad? Still want to see it
