There's actually some talent in this cast (Schwartzman, Segel), but the story here is just not interested in being anything other than a moronic "Road/Euro Trip" farce. I laughed out loud exactly one time ("I will call you lazer") and that seems like a Schwartzman ad-lib to me. Just bad, bad material.

Its not bad its just a bit meh in places - underdone if you like. Also, am I the only one think the plot could have gone very differently? Pathetic nerd humiliates himself and coerces others into trying to win the girl of his dreams, only to get it rudely slammed back in his face. Sounds like an Appatow film waiting to happen, only the nerd would get the girl in that one.

Jason Schwartzman brings new definition to the word cool in this hilarious comedy featuring Jamie King, Laura Prepon, Pete and Pete's Michael C. Maronna and a young Jason Segel.

Jason Schwartzman clearly has a lot of fun playing Ethan, a clueless, geeky and delusional pervert. There are a few decent laughs from his performance, but aside from him the film is pretty much devoid of merit.

Wow I'm surprised how unpopular this movie is. I didn't think it was great by any means but I was entertained watching it. Sure it's over the top comedy with some cheezy romance (that's thankfully overlookable), it's still got some entertaining low-brow laughs.

The overarching romantic storyline is terrible and dumb, but the cheating enterprise side-plot was pretty unique and led to some nice laughs. Schwartzman and Segel are both good in these early roles.

We have been getting screwed by the system. The system that forces us guys to like girls. All right? We're getting pushed into this. What if we just take the girls out of it? We can have our own system, it's a counter-system. And then, you do things together, you swim, you row, you... boat, you eat, you stink. We can just be guys! You can have sex, you can do it, you know, many guys at a time, but it's not gay
