    Who knew cancer could be funny, after all? Great, ballsy little joke that managed to escape Fox marketing's grasp.

    Surprised no one's mentioned Krazee-Eyez Killa himself, Chris Williams.

    Also recommended that you stay through the credits for one of the most wrong "dancing" scenes ever.

    The world needs more movies like this one. A genuine laugh riot that makes you want to pee your pants. This is a good diversion. I loved it.

    Did anyone else notice that the lid of the treasure chest at the end has "Deus Ex Machina" written on it? Good to see a movie that can poke fun at its own stupidity and implausibility. BTW, the lawyer is Ben Stiller's wife in real life. He's a lucky man.

    I noticed that was on the chest too, but despite hearing the phrase several times, I've never fully grasped what it means, and have never looked it up.

    It's a plot device used in some stories to solve a problem in a plot at a convenient time, such as the treasure chest showing up exactly when it looked like it was all over for the good guys.

    Oh, and Jason Bateman's color commentator character was hillarious.
