    Yeah, it didn't do very well theatrically, and the reviews were tepid at best.

    I loved it! It was... very funny in places, but had a “even though they are different, we are all the same, love everyone” story.

    basically, it could have been a family of muslims in Mississippi and only need minimal changes.

    could it have been better? Oh yes.

    $40m budget and it made $180m WW, so it turned a profit.

    And they already announced a sequel, so Uni can't be too upset with its ticket sales!

    I didn't realize it had done even that at the box-office. Good for it!

    I was going to see this back in October, but I "suffer" from procrastination.

    Yeah, it was one of those "quiet earners". It didn't dominate in any way but it kept plugging along in a decent way.

    It's still playing at my local AMC!

    Friends (that I trust) said that it sucked so I didn't bother going to see it in the theater. I'll rent it on iTunes.

    I actually thought it was moderately entertaining. It's a little "safe" and predictable but it manages reasonable amusement, and it's short enough that it doesn't wear out its welcome...
