This movie was awesome. I loved how both actors had distinct personalities that made the show fun, entertaining and funny. This is a light-hearted film with neat special effects. A good see.
I've never written a review, but this movie is SOOOO BAD that I cannot comprehend the rating it is getting. I honestly don't see how some people rate this 5 or even 4 stars. Some of the jokes are funny, but the entire movie is based on the main character(seth) being a total ass, to the point of being completely unrealistic ... even for a movie that is obviously not supposed to be realistic. All those who rated this movie a 1 or 2 are completely correct. Those who gave this movie anything better must have been smoking something ... well then again I smoked something and the movie still SUCKED!!!
Fabulous - even for female movie goers!! Great special effects, funny. Never a dull moment!!
