    This is an instant cult classic in the realm of Stepbrothers and Dumb And Dumber.

    Yes... those are bold statements. I stand by them.

    Really? I have absolutely no compulsion to see this. What puts it on par with those classics?

    the fact that it’s legit laugh out hilarious and I loved the main characters. It’s also got a perfect amount of weird and wacky. A total throwback to great Buddy Comedies.

    I need to see this. Bridesmaids is one of my all time fave movies so I gotta check out what this duo did for this movie. I’m super stoked by Cheese’s review!

    Don’t go in expecting Bridesmaids. This is much more ridiculous and a lot weirder. But great, nonetheless.

    FYI, it's "Vista", not "Visit". I had trouble finding this on netflix because of the typo.

    probably hard to find there because it’s not on Netflix either. :)

    Yeah I didn’t even crack a smile during this and I was really looking forward to it.

    the Morgan Freeman crab was the highlight for me but even then it’s just more odd than funny.
