We'll just have to agree to disagree on this one.
I didn't hate it, I was just way disappointed when I finally saw it, especially since I had heard only the best about it. I could see a lot of the jokes coming, and even some of the lines. Plus, that cameo killed me. I read today that Joe Pesci turned down that cameo role and I think he would have been so much funnier as the surprise. I also downloaded it, but I hear this was a good movie to see in theatres so maybe I should have done that.
I just think a lot of movie companies today do the same thing over and over again with a different twist and expect it to work just as well. After several thousand years of story telling, I know its difficult to come up with something new, but there is just so little originality in Hollywood. I mean, Shakespeare didn't come up with the ideas for a lot of the plays he wrote, but the way he wrote them made them works of art. This movie is just so cliche in some of its plot elements, characters, and dialogue I found it hard to really enjoy.
But like I said, it wasn't horrible, just not nearly as good as I expected.
