About this movie

It's a very forgettable movie. I watched it awhile ago, thought it was ok then. I watched it today, because i literally forgot i watched it before. 15 minutes into the movie i was like "awe man, I've seen this already". I watched it again anyway because i forgot what happened. Mediocre movie with mediocre celebrities.

OMG I laugh so hard whenever I watch this, I usually miss something, hence ; renting it several times - never fails to make me laugh out loud. It pokes fun at some of humanities cherished beliefs and keeps you entertained right to the end.

Good lighthearted movie. The beginning was a kind of stupid funny, but as the movie progressed I enjoyed the funny religious tie in. A good feel good movie.
