Goofs

When Ned Fleming goes to 'his' bowling alley and starts throwing strikes, not all are technically strikes as indicated by the lane shot number light above the pins. Some strikes were actually the second shot of the bowling frame, so they'd only count as spares. See more »

Quotes

Ned Fleming: There's bukkake floating all around me!
Barb Fleming: What's bukkake?
Ned Fleming: Oh, Laird told me; it means when you're overwhelmed and you've got too much going on.
Barb Fleming: Oh, my gosh, I'm like drowing in bukkake at this point.

Jonah and James: Won't get fooled again
27 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

Jonah Hill, James Franco, and another: "Hey I've got only a trailer length's worth of funny content for a new flick that's another ATM for us! We'll stick in some (now formulaic) prolonged disturbing sexual content that differentiates us/the film as young and hip."

Really, if you saw the trailer you saw the best of this movie. Whoever made the trailer really deserves a big payout for creating something people would look forward to as a funny diversion from all the serious political crap of late.

It's got a good cast that's wasted on the lame writing, but hey it's a pay check!
