After dropping off their daughter Maddie to her senior year at Decatur University in Atlanta, Dan tells Deanna that he wants a divorce because he has fallen in love with another woman, a Realtor Marcie, and he also wants to sell their house under his name. Heartbroken, Deanna visits her parents Mike and Sandy to tell them what happened, but Mike is frustrated because Dan made Deanna drop out of her college because she was pregnant, as well as his overbearing ways during their marriage. Deanna goes to see Maddie in her dorm to tell the news about her divorce and her plans to study again at the university to earn a degree in Archaeology. Maddie initially has doubts about her plan but she ultimately accepts it. Maddie introduces Deanna to her friends-Amanda, neurotic Debbie, and Helen. Deanna later meets her agoraphobic and chronically depressed roommate Leonor..

I went to this film without any expectations and I enjoyed it very much. It's a romantic comedy about a first year university student who becomes interested in football but it's played more like a sports film. It's very funny and has great moments of its own. The actors were pretty good as well. I liked the way that the character was portrayed and it's a very unique concept for a first year film and it's a good representation of college life. I was surprised that the football team seemed to play a lot of football and it felt like it's in the movie a lot. It was also nice to see the difference between college students and college football players. Overall I thought that it was a really good film and I recommend it to all of my friends.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that this was a comedy at the time of the film's release. In fact, the comedy value of this movie was so strong that I don't think it would have worked well as a dramatic film. If it were, I think the movie would have suffered from the fact that it was only funny for about the first half of its running time. While the main character is a shmuck, the supporting characters were so well drawn that it was almost unbearable to watch the film and to enjoy the main character. For example, I had trouble caring about the bartender, the house-boy, the baby-sitter, the hooker, etc. I would have to say that if the movie had been rated R and the lead characters had not been supporting characters, it would have been an OK film. But since the main character was only funny for a little while, and the supporting characters were so well drawn that they were almost unbearable, the movie is a very entertaining comedy. The actors who played the supporting characters are all great. Keith David was absolutely hilarious as the male prostitute. His entire performance was very subtle and quite humorous. A great performance from an excellent actor. Dan Aykroyd was brilliant as the dirty landlord. He also had a great comedic performance. The final major performance that I would like to praise is that of Joe Pantoliano as the female hooker. His performance was very subtle and very funny. If it had been rated R, he would have been rated R. Overall, I think that this movie was quite entertaining. It is definitely one of the funniest comedies of its kind and is one of my favorite comedies. I enjoyed this movie and would recommend it to anyone who would enjoy it.

This is not a comedy, this is a drama. And the best part is that the comedy part is totally non-stop. This movie has everything a comedy needs. The storyline, the characters, the laughs, the bizarre situations, and the final scene that will make you cry. I hope the cast in this movie makes more movies and I hope this is the beginning of a trend of Razzie Award winners and Nominees. I also hope that if you don't have a large family you will like this movie. I will be watching this movie until the very end. :)

Two hours and forty minutes of nothing but young people (just 22 in total) trying to deal with issues of sex, relationships, money and work. A couple of the characters are slightly annoying but that's not really the point. The story was fine. The characters are quite good. The movie would have been better if the movie had ended after two hours and thirty minutes. The movie is not really all that serious and in the end it is just a silly comedy about a couple of twenty-somethings that you may or may not have met. The movie is much better than I expected and I will recommend it to anyone.

This is the best comedy I have ever seen. I didn't expect it to be as good as it was. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 was because of some bad acting and some bad script writing. However, I must say that those are no longer a problem. The comedy, acting and writing is excellent and this movie is definitely a gem. The movie is about a party and a group of people that decide to go to the party in order to make some money. The story is a bit rushed and confusing, but if you have a high tolerance for poor script writing you'll enjoy it. The cast is great, but the director has no idea how to make the jokes work. It is a little slow in the beginning, but I think it is because they are trying to get a bunch of jokes in and it doesn't always work. I enjoyed it so much and I recommend it to anyone who has seen the Matrix and other comedies like that. I think everyone should watch it. I think everyone should see this movie. It is definitely one of the best comedies of the year.

This is another political satire from Dan Harris and James Coburn, a great double act. In this case, the two discuss politics as well as play off each other as political professionals. Although I enjoyed this film as a comedy, I can see how political satire might be not a very politically appealing film to people. Perhaps the best part of this film is that they use political satire as a backdrop. The production values of the film are great, and I can't say enough good things about this film. If you enjoy political satire, check this out.

I don't know why people don't like this film. There's not much plot to it, but there is some interesting characters and I can say that this is not as depressing as some people would like to think. I don't think people should be overly concerned about the quality of the film, but I don't think people should give this a bad rating because it's not a typical Hollywood film.

My summary says it all, this is a simple, fun and unexpected comedy. The chemistry between the three leads was so perfect and easy to relate to that it was difficult not to laugh at some of the plot holes. I felt the characters were as likable and sympathetic as I would ever imagine. Some of the humor may be a bit "trite", but that is not to say that there isn't enough, it is just the point of this movie. It is just a laugh and it is the type of movie that is very easy to enjoy, in a way that I do not get to enjoy very often. The story and characters are good, the script is great and the performances are amazing. In fact I think this movie is so far above average that it really is a real gem. The DVD will be an instant classic for sure. Well worth your time and money. A definite movie to watch. I am surprised that the DVD has not been released in Canada.

I don't know why so many people disliked this movie. It was funny, and had a great message to tell. I had never heard of it before and figured that it was just another crappy political movie. However, I was amazed at the amount of support for this movie and why it was so well-received by so many people. This movie was not as preachy as some other political movies out there. However, it did not need to be preachy. It was funny. It was dramatic. It was silly. It was the typical teen movie that is made for teenagers. It is not for the intelligent adult. Therefore, it is not for people with intellectual problems. This movie is not going to win any Oscars, but it is still a good movie to watch.

This film really was a disappointment to me. I was expecting a very dramatic but funny film about the life of the party, that I would see again and again. That was my expectation. I was also expecting a movie that would contain plenty of jokes about drugs, sex and prostitution, but it didn't. In the end, I really liked it. I don't think that I laughed so much during the entire film. I don't think I laughed very hard either, because I really didn't care for any of the characters. But I can't say that it was boring, because of course I was anticipating an epic, beautiful and yet sad love story, and I got it, but not the beautiful love story I was expecting. Anyway, I really liked the story, the acting, the location, the musical soundtrack and I really liked the humor, and I would recommend this film to anybody who likes comedies, but it really didn't deserve all the praise it received.

First of all, let me say that I loved this film. I saw it several times and have been watching it many times since. The cast is terrific and everyone seemed to be having a good time playing the characters. It's a blast to see a bunch of funny, talented people doing a comedy. I had a couple of issues with the movie, but all in all it was great. The music is very well done. The visuals are great. It has a really cool message and message at that. I would have liked it more if they had gone for a darker tone, but it wasn't as bad as I expected. I love a good movie and this one was great.

A good film to watch on a rainy Saturday afternoon. It's a comedy about a guy who accidentally knocks his best friend out and has to take care of him. A slow start, but once the party begins you'll be laughing, and it's really a good movie to watch with your significant other. This is the only film I've ever actually recommended to a woman. And I'm a male.

With a new director in the chair (Greg Cavill), a new cast, and a new director in the writer (Bryan Singer) what should we expect from a much anticipated film? I can say I am really looking forward to seeing this film. The acting is brilliant, the storyline is as intriguing as it is unique, and I am looking forward to seeing what happens with the ending. Unfortunately, I feel that the movie was too slow, and the action wasn't very much. I felt like I was watching something else. The first half was just annoying, and didn't give a lot of the movie. I would have liked to see more of what was going on in the story. I don't know why the movie was a box office hit, because I feel like they could have made this into something really special. Overall, I would give this movie a 7/10, but the ending wasn't what I wanted it to be.

First off, this is not a serious film. It is not a pro-depressant film, nor is it anti-depressant. This is a comedy that tries to get a message across in a funny way. The plot is a parody of the more serious documentary style movies of the 70's, that are just a lot of characters doing "normal" things that really add to the story. Most of the characters do nothing but talk, talk, talk. However, the story and characters are the real stars. In all, the movie does a great job of showing the various personalities that get involved in a Hollywood movie. For the most part, the movie is "just a movie", but it is one of the better films I have seen in a long time. Also, it is a film that actually makes me want to write a review for it. However, I would advise not to make too many negative reviews of this film, as I believe that it is one of the better films of the year. If you have a chance to see this film, do so.

This is another coming of age movie about an ordinary guy who goes to college and starts to discover his own unique personality. A story of growing up and of the coming of age. Also of the first time romantic relationship. I like this movie. It has a good story line and you really get involved with the characters. I liked the lead actor (Jack Black). He did an excellent job. It was his first acting job. And he really showed a lot of emotion and was a very good choice for the role. I liked his performance. He was very good and the role he played was excellent. I think he did a good job. And the supporting cast did an excellent job. I liked the movie. And I liked it a lot.

I had been watching the 'rockumentary' genre for some time, and was keen to try this one out. I wasn't disappointed, the film was actually quite funny and kept me laughing out loud. The story is about a rock band who have one of their members go off the deep end and loses his mind. What follows is a hilarious and wacky adventure. There is a good amount of nudity and lots of sexual innuendo in the film. It's actually quite a clean film, so I think it should be okay to watch without parents, but parents should be warned that there is some nudity and some sexual innuendo. The film is aimed at the teenagers and not the older generations, so it is suitable for that demographic, so I think it's quite enjoyable for the older audiences.

We have seen many comedies in the past decade and I like the type of comedy that has been played and liked by many of my friends. This film is very clever and enjoyable. I would say that it is very different from any other comedy I have ever seen. What makes it different is the fact that it is done very well, but not just done well but really really well. The plot is good and there is a good amount of humor in this movie. The characters are very well played and very likable. There are also some scenes that are very funny. The way the movie ends is also a bit of a surprise. The film is very unique and I would recommend it to people who are into really good comedies.

With the right director, this could have been a good film. It's really a pity that this movie isn't a comedy and that the cast can't find a way to make it funny. When you do a film about "New Jersey" in the 60s, you should have something that can be described as a "New Jersey" comedy. That isn't this film. Instead, it's a dull, boring, and possibly offensive depiction of a small town with no redeeming values. And if you have a "Southern" accent, you are clearly a "new" southern guy. It's a huge failure.

The film "The Party" stars Will Ferrell as the title character, a child actor who can't quite break free from his parents' influence. He is constantly approached by "real" actors and actresses, trying to get his heart into their film. The script for this movie was written by the famous comedy writer David Wain, who also wrote the screenplay for the film "Meet the Parents", which in itself, is a great film. The film itself is rather silly, and the ideas behind the story are just stupid, but the film is very funny. It is not a great comedy, but the film is funny and entertaining.

I can't believe all these negative reviews. Yes, the jokes were a bit lame, but I found it enjoyable and the film had its moments. It is a very well made film. And it's funny. It's got a certain shock value to it. The movie is very good for what it is. A student film that comes out of nowhere. The acting is good. The script is decent. I just wish the film had more humor and not so many plot holes.

Just another comedy about a guy trying to make the party after his Dad gets laid off by his company. This is typical High school comedy. It's not very smart and doesn't have any real moral purpose. The actors are mostly pretty good, but the characters are pretty one dimensional and the jokes are pretty lame. The movie is really just about a guy trying to make the party and to make the people who got laid at the party be really happy. There is very little substance and the characters are flat. This movie could have been better if the jokes were more original and the characters were more interesting. There's not much else to it.

I don't get the fuss. I thought the first movie was better, but that's really no biggie. I saw the first one in a theater and was enthralled. So I saw the sequel, and I thought that was great, too. I liked the first one a lot better than the second, but I don't think that's the main point. The main point is that the movie doesn't take itself seriously. It doesn't really have any kind of plot or story. It's more of a weird, dark comedy. I really like this movie, and I can see why people would enjoy it, too. It has a good cast, and there are some funny moments, too. I think this movie is worth seeing.
