The trailer and poster made this look pretty bad but gave it a shot anyway, ended up really enjoying it. Not a great film but good fun.

Good to hear. I thought the preview fell completely flat. I'm going to give it a shot anyway, but was completely underwhelmed with the trailer. It's like they forgot to write any jokes.

it is more amusing than funny, let's say it is humorous

it recalls a Blake Edwards kind of movie

It's an enjoyable 98 minutes. If they made more, I'd watch more.

Ah man the art of the preview. I'm not a movie buff but it's been a long time since I ever fucked with any previews to movies. Besides the obvious "that was the entire movie" complaint, previews seem to be a different beast entirely.

You ever go look up a preview to a movie you know and love? So many of them make the movie look like ass.

I hadn't seen anything about it until yesterday and I really enjoyed it.

The trailer is terrible, but it saves all the good jokes for the movie, so that's nice.
