It really felt to me like a very modern comedy . . . which I do not mean as a complement. There was basically zero verbal wit on display, just the "throw some words and a gross-out moment at the screen" approach that makes so many comedy movies these days unappealing to me. As a result, I couldn't tell you anything about any of the characters other than "one of them is black" -- they all smear together into the same Comedy Woman I've seen in a thousand other trailers.

Right now I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the actual movie is better than its trailer. God knows those things are frequently not representative, sometimes in good ways, sometimes in bad.
