    up to 7% of rotten tomatoes. it started out at 0%, so I had high hopes, but it's gotten a couple good reviews. too bad.

    I really love critics just ripping a film to shreds, hilarious!


    "This ghastly comedy emits the subliminal whine of a sucking chest wound."
    -- Jessica Winter, VILLAGE VOICE


    "It is, from conception to execution, an unalloyed, unqualified, unmitigated disaster."
    -- Carrie Rickey, PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER


    "With a movie this bad, you can sure the DVD will be out before Christmas, just in time to give to someone that you really, really don't like."
    -- Glenn Whipp, LOS ANGELES DAILY NEWS


    "Affleck is so outrageously miscast as goofball Drew Latham that it's like watching Jennifer Lopez taking on the role of Lady Macbeth at the Scottish National Theatre."
    -- Donald Munro, FRESNO BEE


    "Makes you hope that Santa brings you coal in your stocking - so that you can use it to go upside the head of anyone remotely involved with its production."
    -- Peter Sobczynski, CRITIC DOCTOR

    Seeing Affleck get hit over the head with a shovel for free in the trailers was funny.

    I keep hoping that every flop film that Affleck makes will be the final nail in the coffin of his career. How does he keep getting roles???
