Movie Review by Movie Addict
March 3rd, 2007

A total disaster

I do not know why I watched this movie. I should have watched Olbermann
and Monk instead. I have never seen a Johnny Knoxville film, and I can
only recall maybe one or two Farrelly brothers productions I have seen
in the past. I sincerely regret the time I spent on this mess.

For full disclosure, I have to state that I work every day helping
those with developmental disabilities improve their lives. I know these
individuals intimately and see the daily struggle just to work, have
relationships and lead lives that we take for granted. To see them
mocked by this film was painful.

No, I did not laugh once. Was this supposed to be a comedy? I didn't
even crack a smile. There is nothing funny about pretending to have a
developmental disability no matter what the motivations are. And,
apologizing or making up for your sin is not enough. The only
satisfying response to what was done was by the Priest who kicked
Knoxville's ass down the Church steps. That should be a punishment for
the Farrelly brothers as well.

Aren't we all weird in some way?
