Movie Info: Four everyday suburban guys come together as an excuse to escape their humdrum lives one night a week. But when they accidentally discover that their town has become overrun with aliens posing as ordinary suburbanites, they have no choice but to save their neighborhood — and the world — from total extermination. –20th Century Fox

The Positive: The only positive thing that I can think about this film is that, it’s a front-runner for next year’s Razzies.

The Negative: Crude sexual and scatological references are present throughout the film, most of them aren’t even funny at all. The ensemble lacks 3 important elements: screen chemistry, comedy timing, and witty punchlines. This is probably the worst comedy film of Jonah Hill, Vince Vaughn, and Ben Stiller, ever.
