Just a bad bad movie. Not funny, horribly acted/directed/written, etc, This is the cinematic equivalent of a generic cheeze whiz & spamtype meat sandwich buried under a dog turd and soiled bedsheets for 3 days. Pure crap. If you liked this in any way shape or form...STOP WATCHING MOVIES.
    i caught this in almost the same way... i've been long over Sandler - since (probably) around Happy Gilmore. but i thoughr: "hey, i'm up..." i thought it'd be a bit more entertaining because it was a sort of comedian ensemble bro-out flick that (hopefully) promised at least a few chuckle worthy goofs.

    man, was Rob Schneider particularly high... and awful

    It was sooooooo dumbed down. Everyone associated with this turd should be ashamed. I would rather pay to watch Paul Blart:Mall Cop. Salma Hayek should especially look in the mirror. Hell, even Maya Rudolph and Maria Bello should fire their agents. And this movie repeats on an endless loop. It's enough to make me cancel my subscription to Starz. It's safe to say I HATE this movie.

    I really wanted this to be a great movie, but it was just good. The first 20 odd minutes set the stage for what I thought could have been so much more. I enjoyed the rest of the movie but got tired of being beat over the head with the metaphor of Natalia as Spain. All in all it was enjoyable enough. Sometime comic, other times horror, other times drama. Seems the director had a million ideas he wanted to get in there and did his damn best to get them all in. A for effort, B-/C+ for execution. I'd recommend it.

    BTW - Carolina Bang is SUPER HOT.

    Maybe a dumb question but where did you watch this? I've really been wanting to watch it without buying it. Thanks

    Ok, when I read this review I was only halfway through the movie and I couldn't understand the disappointment. But then I watched the second half. While the first half was overflowing with ideas and interesting visuals(see the title sequence), then there is an almost Tarentino like moment of wtf and all the wind comes right out of the sails. Instead of maintaining that crazy energy it seemed like the writer/director simply got all their points in and realized they had another 40 minutes to fill. I didn't get the subtext of the woman=Spain/Thanks Stormy) but once I did it made sense/became a little heavy handed. Still, it's a movie worth seeing and even though it sounds like I might not have liked it I actually really did. I kept kinda thinking it was the Bizaaro World Pan's Labyrinth.

    Oh yeah, and the beginning, when the circus is conscripted, is reason enough to see the movie.

    Concur. That was what made me think this was going to be a great movie. LOVED that entire sequence.

    It's worth watching just to see how those payasos came to be. Visually stunning/arresting/horrid. I think I'm going to watch it again just to see if I was too harsh on first assessment. And I just want to make sure that Christina Bang really is super hot....

    Yeah, second on the visually stunning part of this movie. It really is beautiful and unique. Washed out at times with single items brightly contrasting. Good acting across the board. The more I think about it the more I like it.

    And yeah, she is.
