    I saw it last night and I really enjoyed it. It's worth the money to go see it. So go see it.

    A kid here at work did. He thought it was hysterical. Of course he's 22 and thinks Wayne's World is hysterical. So if you are in that demographic, you might like it too.

    It was good, and I'm glad we went, but it wasn't quite the side-splitter I was hoping it would be. I liked the subtle humor more than the over-the-top stuff. Adam Dunn pretty much carried it, but most of what he did has been done in his other movies already. If you like Dunn...er, I mean Ferrell...NASCAR, or dumb humor, you'll enjoy it. I like all three, but like I said, it misses the mark just a bit. I'd give it 7/10.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    I'm not in the 22 year old age group, but I enjoyed it. And so did my wife(and she's not 22 either. darn. just joking. )

    It was hilarious. I think the more I see it the more I'll like it too. Not sure if I like it more than Anchorman yet, but its right up there.

    I'm really not sure it matters what demographic you are in...if you like things that are funny you will like the movie.

    Maybe one of these days I'll wake up and "get" Will Ferrell. I seem to be in the minority who doesn't think he's the least bit funny.

    Ferrell is hit or miss for me, but I enjoyed this movie.

    20% cliches (blindfolded driver crashes car into house; athlete loses it, then regains it via training from old nemesis), etc.

    80% genuinely funny stuff.

    Sasha Cohen and John C. Reilly are really, really good. It's not just Ferrell.

    I'd call this a "wait for video" but when it comes out on video be sure to see it.

    I loved it, I will recommend to everyone I know to go see it. Now, the movie "The Descent" on the other hand may have been one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

    The local paper's movie critic says the problem with Will Ferrell is that he can't seem to decide whether he's channeling Jerry Lewis or Dean Martin in his performances. I thought it was a fair criticism, since he seems to keep a foot in both the "earnest straight man" and the "daffy comedic performer" sides of the fence.

    I liked it a bunch. Its a similar plot to Anchorman in some sense so the story line wasnt hard to see unfold. Ferrell's performance was very good and I thought Gary Cole was terrific. It could have lost about 10-15 minutes however.

    Naming one's children "Walker" and Texas Ranger" is just plain funnt to me. (Beats the alternative of "Dr Quinn" and "Medicine Woman").
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    I like the baby version of Jesus. When you say grace you can choose which version of Jesus you want.

    Same here.

    He was good in Old School. That was about it for me.
