I thought this was pretty good! A few jokes didn't land but a solid B+ overall. Still behind 40-Year-Old Virgin in the big list of Judd Apatow movies.

John Cena was better in this than The Rock has ever been in anything except mayyyyybe Be Cool. LeBron James, same thing.

Me, just before Cena's last scene..."Oh shit. Is that John Cena?" But I haven't watched wrestling in years.

I didn't care for the movie overall. The audience in "Ant-Man" laughed WAY harder than this audience did.

Best scene was the boyfriend and LeBron James having the token buddy talk over a game of one-on-one.

I thought it was funny, but I had people in the audience laughing at basically everything. If I saw it with a different crowd, it might have been different.

I wonder what the senior citizens I saw in the theater thought of the raunchiness.

I still couldn't quite buy the lead characters falling for each other, especially him being into her.

My favorite part was LeBron the cheapskate trying to get out of paying for lunch.

Enjoyed this k ore than I t ng ought I would. Lots of funny parts, but seemed to wanted to be taken more seriously than a routine comedy.

You don5 realize how big Cena is un5il you can see his thoughts. He doesn't skip leg day.

I'm not sure what creeped me out more.....Tilda Swinton looking like a semi-normal person for once, the fact that she and Ezra Miller shared scenes (We Need To Talk About Kevin flashbacks! Argh!) or John Cena's mostly-naked body. What a weird-looking guy. He's built like a human Ninja Turtle.

This same criticism could be made about virtually any romcom where it's a slob guy inexplicably landing a woman out of his league.

If I did not know ahead of time that it was Tilda Swinton, you could have given me 1,000 chances and I never would have guessed it was her. That being said, she was very funny.

It was a good movie. Could have been great. Feel like they wimped out a little by going full blown Rom-Com in the second half. Would have preferred more comedy.

First thing my wife said after seeing the movie was that she couldn't believe that Bill Hader's character would have problems getting women. With his high profile job with famous professional athletes as his clientele, he would have women practically lining up to date him.
