Dumb, but fun if you don't expect much
20 January 2014 | by peo-19See all my reviews

The movie is about this washed-out high school hero that ends up at a local gym. In comes a new owner that ends up in trouble. The owner is former super-model with lots under his belt.

The hero finds, somehow, comfort in an impromptu shrink meeting in the locker room, and finds himself.

The first part of the movie is not bad at all, it is fun, witty (if you go there with the right mindset), but the last 20 minutes are pretty dull and bad.

Not a bad 2 hours to spend seeing something, but don't expect anything above average.
