I'd like to give it another try, especially since I didn't watch all the way through. Sadly, this was the movie where I finally had to admit I was getting old. Was over at a friend's house...he's 5 years younger than me, and his roommates were all 5-8 years younger than him. Both my friend and I didn't like it...the other "kids" were laughing their butts off...

For some strange reason, I found this movie hilarious and always stay tuned in when it comes on cable. I can't explain why it is funny and to be honest and I can understand why it does not work for some. This review seems to take the movie a bit too seriously. Of course there is no real plot. The same could be said for Caddyshack but it is also one of my favorite comedies.

Caddyshack no plot? You're gone. Caddyshack has a very well constructed plot

Love the movie, but I don't see enough here to get me to double-dip.

One of those movies I never really got, as to why it had such a following. The store I was working at, at the time, people were asking if we'd have a midnight release when it came out.

I think as a rule, reviewers with a bias against a particular movie should not review it. I personally think Napolean Dynamite is a perfect piece of post-modern comedy, and that it is far superior by any objective measurement than these by-numbers Judd Apatow movies&clones.

I like this movie okay. The reviewer definitely seems cold and analytic towards it.

Small mistake:

In that sense, it doesn't take long to see that Hess is only interested in doing various takes on the same theme, which is to place one of characters in a ridiculous situation

Yes, the T-1000 Review Robot will be installed shortly on HDD's website.
It will remove all subjective human bias. All comedies will be reduced to
0s and 1s with binary evaluation for objective measurement of funny.
