Absolutely hated this film.

I've got great love in my heart for 'dark humor' and Very Bad Things is one of my guiltiest pleasures in that regard, but I feel like I was bait-and-switched after coming out of this one...

The trailers made it look like one of those laugh-out-loud comedies but the reality is it wasn't. It gets flat-out dark near the end. And not in any 'ha ha' kind of way.

First time in years I've ever left a theatre going "No way in hell is that finding its way into my collection".

This movie is hysterical. It isn't the best comedy I have ever seen, but it is one of the best comedies of the year since it is actually funny and not just one big giant sex joke comedy. I won't buy it for $20, but when it is eventually $5, count on it.

If that was true, it'd surely have pulled in "one of the best comedies of the year" bucks.

But it didn't.

Default Nate Boss review comment: "hare" not "hair" brained typo

A gamble of a movie, this one deserves kudos for taking risks.

Maybe your state of mind was off when you saw this. I saw it in a packed theater and the audience was rolling. Not too sure what was sooo dark?

That's because people would rather watch garbage like Hangover 2, Glee, Green Hornet, and No Strings Attached rather than a good comedy like this or Paul.
