    Anyone else see this movie? I laughed out loud..and I haven't laughed out loud in a movie for a long time.

    I especially liked the beginning trailers and Downey Jr. performance, had no idea Iron Man could be a black man...

    And everyone was laughed at, "I'm just a little boy who plays with his penis when he's nervous." Random...

    Also, when he said "You people":twisted:

    Downey made the movie. Without him it would have been an hour and a half long How-many-people/groups-can-you-offend-in-one-film-fest, but he pulled everything in the movie together.

    It was a funny movie. I didn't know Downey Jr. could be that funny. In my opinion, everything that came out of his mouth was funny. Some of my favorites were:

    "Suck my unit"

    "I bet I could collar up some of them greens; noodle some crawfish out the patty, yo."

    Great movie, Downey was hilarious. I liked the addition of Tom Cruise, almost didn't know it was him until I noticed his behaviour was really like Tom Cruise's. Then credits confirmed.

    I loved the part where he killed the panda though.

    I heard it could've been funnier if they didn't put all of the funny parts in the trailer.

    In Chicago, a guy actually paid some mentally retarded people to stand in front of a downtown theatre and protest the movie's use of the word "******." :rolleyes: I'll get a link to a story in a sec.

    Les Grossman: "Why dont you step back, AND F**K. YOUR OWN. FACE!!

    I couldnt stop laughing at that.

    A "spoiler" caution would have been appreciated.

    Actually went to see this with the wife and we left about 25 min. in. Not really very funny IMHO.

    I can't watch ANY movie with Jack Black in it. He's so bad at acting

    Let me guess. Was it the director's "exit" scene?

    I haven't laughed so much in a long time. Great movie. I'd love to see it again.

    Yeah, not a great family/date movie. More like a guy-friend type movie where you don't want anything intellectually stimulating, just something to laugh over.

    ^^^ lol yes, definitely. Me and my friends had an absolute blast, but I bet the majority of girls would have been disgusted (guts pouring out, blood spewing from the head).

    Yea, I mean its a no-brainer (pun intended;)

    Why you would go into the movie expecting a Shawshank is beyond me.
