This movie was really really enjoyable. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a movie that didn’t rely on dick jokes, marijuana references and slightly homophobic jokes to get a laugh. This movie was just plain funny. It has twists you don’t expect in a comedy film, the plot is engaging, and the characters were great.
I think his is a great movie to watch when you just need a little bit of action with a good laugh.
I laughed out loud. Even on the second viewing. It is hilarious and uses the "f word" way more often than I think a movie should and I love it. The idea that the characters in the movie are so unaware of what's "really" going on works. The next door neighbor is perfect and the dog (it never even barks) steals the show.
This is a hilariously fun movie. we watched it twice within our rental timeframe. I completely recommend it. Is it always plausible? no, there are plot holes and one rather glaring one at the end. But who cares? it was a fun and funny thrill ride all the way through. The premise is brilliant and it delivers very well on the premise. Just watch it, there is no better deadpan delivery on a comedic level than Jason Bateman in this movie.
Great movie, keeps you guessing about plot thru whole movie. Watch it a second time with my wife and 29 yr old son and they both liked it and thought it was a great movie. Funny, keeps you on the edge of your seat sometimes and trying to guess what is going on. Definitely recommend this to anyone over 15 yr old maybe.
With movies like this, I never have high expectations.
If you're looking for a mindless comedy, you've come to the right place. This film is ridiculous. Suspend your disbelief, and have a good time. Jason Bateman is in maximum mail-it-in mode, but he's great anyway. The real scene stealer in the movie is Jesse Plemons, better known as Todd (Meth Damon) from Breaking Bad. Perhaps I assumed he didn't have comedy in him, but Pleamons is brilliant as "Gary".
We got this for date night just because the reviews were so great. Normally my boyfriend and I go to bed by 8 and never NEVER finish a film in one sitting. Let me tell you, we finished this film in one night. It was hilarious and interesting from start to finish. It had a non-cliched man and woman relationship, a unique storyline, and twists galore. Gosh I wished they made more movies like this, we were blown away!
