If you're a fan of the cast then you will enjoy this movie a lot more than someone who is unfamiliar with this laugh riot crew. Clearly Maya Rudolph is total preggers during this film but they do quite a fine job of hiding it. Chris O'Dowd has this weird American accent. He sounds oddly Canadian then from North Dakota. Kudos for the effort. I know in Bridesmaids he was tough to understand at times.
It's like all these couples…
Being a non-Wes Anderson fan, I was pleasantly surprised by my enjoyment of this film. It's quirky, per the usual W.A., but not so over the top that it doesn't seem slightly plausible.
Perhaps the reason I didn't cringe while watching it was the fact that real main characters (the kids) aren't stars. Seeing famous actors take weird quirky roles it distracting. I think it's a great date night film, but I ask that you don't jump on the crazy bandwagon of hipsters that always go overboard with a film of this nature. It's just a movie people.
