A buddy & I walked in with zero expectations after only watching the trailer, and we were sore from laughter 10 minutes into the movie, to the point I couldn't even eat my popcorn. Sure, the jokes are hit 'n' miss and it's too long (like many comedies), but the pairing of Ferrell & Marky Mark is pure gold. Forget the plot - there isn't one!
eljay - did you stay for the closing credits? It surprised me how serious all the facts & figures were compared to this silly comedy we just watched. Interesting stuff, but odd choice given the film.
