(br) wrote: Dennis Dugan directed this? I mean, he's a terrible director but HE directed this? And a 18%? This movie had some funny scenes. And I did like the plot. And I actually liked the characters and how mean spirited it got. Sure, it had some unfunny stuff. But I can't deny that watching R. Lee Ermey being a gay football coach was funny.
