I've been stalling writing this review for awhile. I'm aware there's a lot of people who love this tv series and movie. I'm aware that many on this website have rated it highly. I've pondered it repeatedly and just can't get myself to rate it any higher.

I admit it. I find no redeeming value to this film whatsoever. Don't get me wrong...I can get into tasteless. It doesn't bother me. I can even go for the offensive at times. No, I don't blame the film because there's been copycat stupidity. (Though I do think the film crosses the line of responsibility).

I didn't find the film funny...I found it rather sophomorish way. I found it pointless and, at times, obviously stupid and cruel. I didn't find it entertaining in the least. I have seen it, at times, on television and could watch it in small doses. It simply didn't translate well to the big screen for me.

I can accept that many find this entertaining, however, I'm just not one of them.
