Ok, the rules:

1. You must have seen the movie.
2. No double voting!
3. Say how you voted (to ensure #2 is upheld)


This thread was started to settle a debate over whether or not the movie was falsely marketed as a comedy.

Maybe 5 funny moments in the whole movie (all in the previews).  Still a great movie, but ridiculously depressing.... everyone in the theater was crying practically the whole way through!

That's so crazy!  I had the exact opposite experience!  I heard people sniffling all around me!  How odd!  I personally thought it was really sad too...  I think seeing audience impact on personal perception might be an interesting psychological study.  ;)

Hopefully others saw it so we can get a more national perspective!

hahaha.  No both I and the person I saw it with found it hilarious.  Cabin Fever too, just because it was THAT AWFUL.

At least we've found some common ground, so if anyone else actually votes neither of us will feel crazy for thinking it was funny or not.  ;)

Actually, it was the kid from Boy Meets World.  The fact that he is "the kid from Boy Meets World" should have been indicative of what kind of movie it would be.

I wish I had your instincts!  ;)

Me too!

And that's how I talked my non-bf into taking me.  He was so hot.  The movie was totally not worth it though.

I did too!

I'm glad we can agree on that much about the movie.  ;)
