    Fun movie. Went in with no expectations, but was excited about the cast. We were not disappointed in any way, mostly because we knew it would be (and was intended to be) a "no-brainer" film. Lots of fun - lots of laughs. Critics: lighten up and let a film be what it's supposed to be - entertainment!

    Billy Bob and Heder are hilarious, great writing, only problem is the rest of the cast could not keep up.

    Lots of fun. Good cast, lots of good supporting roles. Billy Bob was very credible, Michael Clarke Duncan was superb, as usual. Jon Heder, Sarah Silverman and Ben Stiller all gave worthwhile performances. Silly, but lovable.

    After reading the reviews i wasnt expecting much, But it was entertaining! Very much a teen movie, but one of the best of its kind. Fast paced and good fun with a well selected cast. 8/10 !

    Uproarious and unexpectedly biting.

    Picture seemed certain to either fly high on outrageous humor or crash under the weight of tastelessness. Instead, the movie just sits there and never comes alive.

    Dr. P (Billy Bob Thornton) is a classy, cool brand of vile--the demented drill sergeant in a designer suit. And Heder, cast in the role of the invisible man, is fine too. The movie wouldn't work without someone as nondescript as Heder.
