All you really need to know about this movie is it was hilarious. Heder is funny, Ferrell is his usual awesome self, Poehler and Arnett are fantastic, and you get to see Jenna Fisher in lingerie. What more do you want, GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!

It clearly wasn't on the level of Ferrell's classics (Anchorman, Old School, Talladega Nights), but it was still a fun little movie. Going by the 'frat pack' ranking scale, it was about on the level of Dodgeball. I couldn't help but get the impression that half of Ferrell's lines were improvised. Jon Heder, honestly, might as well have not been in the movie, given how much Ferrell outshone him.
Did anyone else giggle every time someone referred to Craig T. Nelson as Coach?
I don't know what is more disquieting -- the fact that the rest of the statue is missing, or that it has four toes.
The movie should've been about the Arnett-Poehler-Fischer family since their scenes were the only good ones. And I'm a sizeable Will Ferrell fan. But I don't think this was as good as even Starsky & Hutch. Arnett and Pam were excellent, however.
I wish I could say that this film won't do well financially being released so close to The Avengers... I really do. I'll say this, it's the most Gothy-ess McGoth thing since Bauhuas formed. Maybe that's an overstatement but it was just so cliche.
