17 kinds of fun with unstoppable Ryan Reynolds. We discovered it over New Year's. Somehow the mostly believable, always wild physical comedy never ends. Don't worry: all that laff-a-minute slapstick plus truly whacked out family holiday insanity will break the ice whenever and with who(m)ever you watch this . Three side plots and superb work in uber pranks and brotherly wrestle-a-rama by Live-At-Home Little Brother Chris Klein (Oz in AMERICAN PIE), keep it moving.
For all of us who always wanted to right some really uncomfortable high school wrongs, bonk the right person in your hometown for once, and free the Nerd Within, this laugh-a-thon's for you. And you know you wanted to see all that NJ Christmas yard display stuff get toasted, right?
Ryan Reynolds is a convincing fat kid when in high school and is going through what probably every kid that is like him has in their life. They want to take that one shot at the "hot" friend they have with disastrous consequences. The difference in this movie in real life, however, is that Chris Brander (Ryan Reynolds) decides to take his embarrassment as a cue to leave town and make himself "better" by taking out his frustrations of being the fat kid on any woman that happens to walk into his life.
Amy Smart plays a typical high school female who does her best to ignore that her best friend is absolutely in love with her all the while dating popular jocks. She grows up and is stuck in the same old town and does not amount to what she thought she might from years past.
The dynamic between the two is certainly hilarious at times, especially when Chris reverts back to his old self when seeing Jamie Polamino (Amy Smart). Dusty Dinkleman (Chris Klein) adds an interesting wrinkle to their adult story but is ultimately phased out.
Overall, a solid movie if you like this type of comedy and it follows in the same vein as normal Ryan Reynolds movies (with exception to Amityville Horror). While I would not consider it a "dumb" comedy as it seems to reflect true life more than what we would care to admit, it does have situations in it that would hopefully never truly happen. Some of the situations in the movie are truly disastrous and unfortunate but it seems like everything works out in the end. If you are in the mood for a laugh then this would be a good movie to watch. However, do not ever watch this movie with a friend you are trying to woo. It probably will not go over well.

The idea of a long term crush ,having been put in the friendzone, who then leaves town becomes sucssessful at life and with the ladies ,returns home and then see his crush after a few years is a great idea . This film then fails to finish off that idea , its not funny but silly and a waste of the stars that are in it , could have been as good as Somthing About Mary, but it just burns out , no fizzle or sparks just smoke and a bad smell.
I brought this second hand ,0.39p , don't pay any more for it , or watch it on low res on youtube , if you still can, before you buy , This is a film in need of a remake , its not often you get to write that and mean it, only the 2nd and 3rd act need a rewrite.
