Comedy Classic!
12 August 2013 | by siavash_khavarnejadSee all my reviews

I am really shocked by this movie's super low rating of not even five out of ten, I figured it probably would be kind of low since it was not as good as Chris Elliott's TV show Get a Life and a lot of people didn't like his humour or this movie, but it was pretty good. It's obviously not for everyone with a really "out there" sense of humour but for what it was it was really funny, with a lot of laugh out loud gut busting moments. David Letterman's "wanna buy a monkey?" cameo is fantastic and Chris Elliott is great as the full of himself, super annoying rich kid turned cabin boy. I really recommend it if you like any of his other work or Get A Life.
