Concept: D
Story: F
Characters: Two fun characters, and two boring characters. C
Dialog: A
Pacing: B
Cinematography: C
Special effects/design: C
Acting: B
Music: B
Enjoyment: Hart & Hall are hilarious. It could have been a great movie if they'd cut out all the stuff with the crappy Romantic Comedy Characters, and just had the funny scenes. The other stuff (aka "the plot") is so cliche and obvious, there's really no story-telling reason to bother with showing any of it happening. B

GPA: 2.3/4
