Poorly structured comedy ruins the timing of the jokes, many of which are broad and unfunny in the first place, and presents characters who are uniformly unpleasant and unsympathetic. One of the awful running gags concerns a neglected kid from next door who's exploited for his ability to swallow hamburgers whole. Not only is the set up creepy and nonsensical, it ends with a punchline involving child sex, which is indicative of how thoughtlessly this production was put together. A gaggle of talented comedians are left hung out to dry, including a tired looking Charles Grodin, and a pre-superstardom Amy Adams, who spends a couple of minutes playing a hateful bitch. This doesn't include Zach Braff, who brings his own special comic vacuum to proceedings, sucking even more life out of the picture.
