    I don’t think critics know what to do with comedies. Comedy is all about writing, acting, timing, direction. Those aspects are obviously part of any film but in comedy those things are paramount. Comedy doesn’t need to have a moral or to say something profound to be a roaring success. In fact, most if the time it shouldn’t? Sometimes that ruins comedy. Anyway, loved it, and found humor in the truth and profanity of it all. One of the most enjoyable movies I’ve seen this year.

    I had a lot of fun "watching" Fresh, though I covered my face through most of it.
