Smith carved his own niche out of nothing and gladly returned to indie filmmaking after getting burned by Hollywood. He is first and foremost a comedy director, but also has a knack for horror, which makes for an oeuvre well worth exploring.

His newfound independence is a true blessing, one he exploits to the fullest. I thoroughly enjoyed Smith's new film and I surely hope he can keep this up for a while longer.

Smith and Mewes are way too old for this, but the rest of the film is pretty zany and fun. Some decent meta jokes, a couple of funny pop culture references and solid pacing make this an amusing, though slightly dated comedy. Not quite up there with Smith's better films, but if you're looking for a silly diversion this is a pretty solid option.
