This movie was a piece of crap and you couldn't pay me to watch that movie ever again. All it was was toilet jokes and not even the funny ones. Can't believe that adults made this movie, nothing funny or interesting about the characters. It was like a bad version of the wimpy kid movies. Don't know why the reviews are so high, probably just a reflection of peoples maturity.
