Humor is a tough business/thing. You can't please everybody. And this movie right here goes extremely silly in many cases, which seems to have alienated a lot of the main protagonists fans. His fan base should be used to the brand humor, but it seems many did expect something different from this outing.

I don't think the movie is nearly as bad as many have made it or anywhere as bad as it was received financially. There's quite a lot of good jokes in this, but again they obviously didn't work with the big crowd. I had other issues, especially with Michael Herbig. He doesn't seem able to shake off his TV past. It still seems from time to time that he tries to look into the camera. Still if that's the only criticism you have of course, that shouldn't block your viewing pleasure. Especially because he surrounded himself with a great cast. Not his best effort, but way better than you might expect
