I just saw that yesterday myself.  Very funny.  Very subdued.  I enjoyed it.

This weekend it's ZOMBIELAND!  I'm really looking forward to that one!

Saw this on Friday and I'd give it a B.  Entertaining at times, but also some lengthy bores between laughs.  IT definitely picks up and gets more and more out of control near the end.

I was going to see that last weekend, but $8 just felt like too much for an 81 minute movie.  I'll catch it on DVD.

I just got back.  I'd go further than entertaining.  I thought it was legitimately scary.

And I watch a lot of scary movies, and I'm rarely impressed.

I haven't seen a good "scary" movie since Texas Chainsaw Massacre Beginning or whatever it was called from a few years ago.  I'd like to see this flick, but it's not showing at my theatre.   :-\

Agreed.  I've never been a scary movie fan, but watching them at home with beer on the small screen makes them tolerable, if not enjoyable.  But yeah, if Rob's scared by something on the movie screen, it's a flat out pass for me.

As an aside, I'm a little annoyed by the 3-D re-releases and new movies that require you to pay an exhorbitant price ($15 here) just to get the glasses.  I'm ok buying them once but with a nine year old we've been to half a dozen movies in the past year where they still charge you even if you keep your old glasses.  It's a gimmick folks, even if it is significantly more well done than in the past.

They still charge even if you have a pair?  I was going to use mine from Up to see the Toy Story combo, but no dice if they're going to recharge me for another pair.

Lame..

They do charge you again.  The added charge isn't only for the glasses (which they recycle anyway), it's for the 3D presentation.  It's a way for theaters to earn more money.

The 3D effect doesn't work for me, so I have to seek out a non-3D presentation of any film I want to see.  All I see are double-images and blurriness with the current technology.  It makes the films nearly unwatchable.  If theaters go all-3D, I'll just resort to watching movies on Blu-ray.
