Hm I found watching this to be odd and I think that was because of my expectations based on the marketing. It is advertised as a vulgar teen sex comedy from Will Ferrell & Adam McKay. They are producers on the film so that isn’t false but it does give the audience a certain expectation of what it is. Also every trailer/commercial seemed to feature the only really raunchy bits in the film.
The setup is typical: dudes wanting to lose their virginity and this one is done in a mockumentary style. The movie isn’t very funny even when it is trying to be and when it is trying to be serious I just got even more bored. Part of that I will blame on my expectations of what the movie was sold to be but part of it I will blame on the movie just not being very funny.
Hmm I don’t think I laughed much if at all during this movie. Kinda marketed wrong. I get them using McKay and Ferrell’s names to sell it but it sets up a wrong expectation that this is another Anchorman or Foot Fist Way kind of movie. Pretty dull and forgettable I thought.
