You might be thinking how can this be bad or how can I only give it 1 1/2 stars. It has Ben Stiller as both the star and director, Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell, and many more. I guess I am just not into poor attempts at humor. If you actually try to think during this movie it will make your head explode. Maybe it is Stiller talking in a baby voice through the whole thing. I am not sure what it is but it just does not work for me. The overall story of a professional good looking person that does not have all that many brains does have some level of humor to it. Then you partner him up with a nice reporter (is there such a thing). What I am trying to get at is all the pieces put together just don't seem to work all that well. I would avoid this movie if you want to save yourself from wasting part of your life on this movie that just really does not deliver.
