This film makes the irritating mistake of saying it is mocking a certain lifestyle, but instead indulges in this lifestyle, and even idealises it. It’s not satirical, it’s not subversive and it isn’t even funny. It squeezed one chuckle out of me and that’s a real shame because I like Joseph Gordon Levitt. It’s a painful film that inevitably ends up indulging in this “lad” culture, whilst overloading us with cliches and stereotypes. There’s no development or extra dimensions, just flat caricatures. A very bad directional debut and a huge disappointment.
