Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The Rock is fun to watch, for a while at least. The rest is one big fat wallow in instant stupid.
Rotten: Teeters between absurdity and earnestness.
Rotten: Not even Zac Efron's abs can distract us from the fact that we are treading in shallow, shallow waters.
Rotten: Unlike the setup, the story founders and cramps like a tourist who swam too soon after an all-you-can-eat buffet, which is pretty much the only thing the filmmakers don't toss into the water by film's end.
Even the fake reviews couldn't save it
Just bad. Fluctuates between cringeworthy and mindless. I lost a few brain cells in the process. This no cut on the actors, who tried their best to keep this turkey afloat. Hopefully Hollywood will change raunchy comedy plots and subplots after this. And those 5 star reviews sure look like the same writer.
Not a masterpiece but its good to watch like if you are hanging out with your friends while getting drunk on Friday night.
