Holy Bad, Batman!
I saw a good chunk of this and didn't laugh once. It is an excuse to have a string of spoofs, one after the other, for no reason whatsoever. First off, merely having someone do an impersonation of, say, Owen Wilson in 'Wedding Crashers' or Ben Stiller in 'Dodgeball' does not automatically equal 'funny'. This film almost dares you to see if you can catch every single spoof they try to do - and why bother spoofing unheard of dreck like 'The Wedding Planner' or 'Shallow Hal' or 'Hitch'? Who cares? Spoofs work better when the target is serious-themed, like disaster flicks ('Airplane!') or Sci-Fi ('Spaceballs'). There's no subtlety either - the joke will go on and on and on and on, long after the punchline laugh's shelf-life would've expired. Example: the actresss imitating Jennifer Lopez is depicted having an extra-enormous-pillow-stuffed booty. Okay, we get it. Barely funny, but we're treated to her knocking things over with her bug butt and bumping into people with her big butt for minutes on end.....and all the jokes go on like this too, ad nauseum.
There is a scene where the cast spoofs the impromptu song-and-dance scene from 'My Best Friend's Wedding'. The original is a very good date movie and the original scene is genuinely spontaneous and funny, but here, the cast just does a lame song with lame lyrics and expects you to laugh because it's a spoof? That's just not good enough reason, plus it's just not good material to be spoofing.
Anyways, I've gone on too long for this waste of celluloid. Avoid at all costs. Really. You'll hate yourself for watching this.

Mitch hits the nail on the head here. Don't bother with it. I actually watched it twice (don't ask) and it is beyond bad.
