    You sure, IMDB says it was released in 2004...

    I watched it...the joke that is the movie, is funnier than the movie itself. Myself and my mom's fiance have a good time pretending that the other one loved it.

    Like andrew said, the only part I really laughed at was the cow. The dance-off, and time machine were also decent.

    You sure about Ebert and Roper? Ebert gave it 1.5 stars and said that a depressed, deathly silence throughout the movie would have been appropriate.

    Hah hah, totally agree with that guy. The movie's not really good. It's just the shear stupidity and overall crapyness of the plot (if there is such a thing) that makes it popular. Definitly not one of my favorites but still enjoyable as long as you don't start watching it thinking it would be great.

    wow tough crowd. I thought there were some really funny scenes in it, ok its not a literary masterpiece but if you take the film in the context its meant to be aimed at --- showing some dysfunctional family members I think its a really fun film.

    What about the scene the two brothers go to learn the karate with the butch instructor, that was literally just so DUMB you had to laugh, "kick me, ok kick me again", as the instructor just slaps the geeky older brother then calls the other brother "peter pan"...... all slapstick comedy, certainly not sophiscated but christ do we need to analyse everyting !!!

    Its just a dumb film and all I can say is I laughed in bed when I was ill, good enough for me !

    My kids thought it was a stupid movie as well at ages of 16 and 12 years, honestly I laughed more then I thought I would. Zardon, maybe the humour is for us more mature minded and aged individuals :rofl: :p .

    Ah, that'd be cool! :cool:

    Yeah, I watched it as well, and I found it really funny, though I do have to admit, it was really dumb. :lol:

    In the start of the movie I didn't even think that I was actually gonna laugh. :)

    quite possibly the dumbest movie I have ever seen. Although I have since watched it two more times and am constantly quoting him....hmmm maybe it was that bad :confused:
