Negative—…When I went to see it, after seeing the previews, I genuinely thought it was going to be funny. Boy, was I wrong! It’s the same marijuana-laced joke over and over again. Basically, everything that’s supposed to be funny about this movie is stemmed from the egregious use of the Mary Jane weed (marijuana). I mean, if I wanted to come up with the ultimate video game (and in many ways, I probably could) without having to smoke pot, I think I very well could. That’s what this movie is about, after all: Smoking the grass and creating video games. Some of this film is funny, but for the most part, if you are not an avid drug user, don’t bother. It is the antithesis of all those anti-drug public service announcements. Profanity? Fuhgetaboutit! There’s just about nothing but profanity! This film is for losers and users. Don’t waste time you will eventually want paid back to you watching it.

The Lord wants us high on the Spirit, and something like this will only turn you in the other direction, the way of darkness and shallow spirit. Seek the One and Great True, and there will be no doubt.
My Ratings: Very Offensive / 2

Positive—…this is hands down the funniest movie I have ever seen. I feel so ashamed for saying that, but it’s true. I could not stop laughing. Don’t get me wrong, this is one of the most offensive movies I’ve seen in a while, but its rated R so what do you expect.

…It’s as aimless and pointless as a joke told while stoned. …
—The Dallas Morning News, Roger Moore
…Do we really need to see some self-made slacker sitting on a couch wasting his life away while getting wastedagain? And again? And again?…
—Plugged In, Steven Isaac
…an interminably flat, one-joke movie…
—The Associated Press, Christy Lemire
…gross-out comedy is present in abundance…
—The Hollywood Reporter, Frank Scheck
…too much of a dopey thing… the kind of laid-back goofball comedy custom-designed to chase away any self-respecting respectable person…
