Hilarious Dark Comedy - Well worth the price of admission.
I saw a trailer for this movie on Youtube and actually laughed out loud (doesn't happen often). So I looked it up and saw that it was already out in select theaters. I had a good feeling about it, and I love 'dark comedies', so I threw down and went with my wife. We both thoroughly enjoyed the film. Everyone in the theater was laughing out loud. Despite the movie dragging a bit in parts, I was in tears by the mid-point. This is just a really fun movie. The acting is great, the jokes are mostly fresh and well delivered. The plot is not anything spectacular (honestly, it's pretty predictable), but it's a comedy so the plot is always secondary to the humor.
I don't want to post spoilers, but suffice to say that I paid $21 for two tickets to see this and would consider going again. I almost never go to the theater anymore because the garage that hollyweird dumps on us is never worth the price of admission - but this film really delivered. Go see it if you can, otherwise make sure to pickup or rent a copy when it comes out on video.
