Ok

Had a few funny parts (what was shown in the trailers) the rest is ok a few chuckles here and there the rest kind if drags. — MoNayrooz0223

Funny throughout
★★★★★
Didn't have high expectations for this movie. Though it might be another pointless movie like Neighbors 2. But much to my surprise, it was really funny the whole way through. Just one stupid moment IMO. Fun movie. Good acting. Watch it. — SgtStorm

Confused vulgarity with comedy

Could have been funny, has a few moments, but more often confuses shocking vulgarity with comedy. — Michael Prescott

Great comedy...
★★★★★
So funny, couldn't stop laughing (especially since I have a teenage daughter). Those who didn't find this movie to be funny are probably those who you do not want your daughter to marry. LOL — 991tts

Great movie ! Worth a watch and buy πŸ˜‡ — Amish40032882

Great movie!
★★★★
Saw this in theaters and had a great time. This is the first comedy James Franco has been in that's actually without Seth Rogen and even tho the two of them are perfect for comedy it's good to see that Franco's still trying out new things in his career. Probably one of his better movies to be completely honest. A must see! — Sam 13 50

This is a Paperless House!
★★★★★
Movie gives us Franco's freak. A freak of natural hilarity! Cranston's "straight dad" was "my dad" so it freaked me out. Overall, movie had me laughing...which is a huge part of entertainment for me. So, forget the critics and enjoy movie for what it is...comedy. I'm adding this movie to my holiday playlist. — Awe Heal
