MichaelA.’s review published on Letterboxd:
This film is way too long, predictable, cliche, ridiculous, and overall nothing special. That being said god damn it if I’m not a sucker for a corny ending, a good song, and pride In ones country.
The writing of this film is unbelievably cheesy and just straight out bad. The acting is not as bad as the writing I can’t help but love Will Ferrell no matter what he’s doing and Rachael McAdams was quite fun aswell. That duo is what carried most of the film for me and is what helped me the 2 hour mess between the beginning and the end.
I know it sounds like I’m bashing this movie pretty hard, which I am, but also I’m not too hard to entertain I still was able to find fun in this film and a little bit of enjoyment. I also really liked the ending scene no matter how corny it was.
Overall not very good but if you just turn your brain off it can be a bit of a fun time. Grade: C
