Mr. Woodcock (Comedy 2007)

The previews for this one looked humorous enough to watch. Billy Bob Thornton has been in a few films that I thought were funny, namely Bad Santa and Pushing Tin, so maybe he could still deliver. As for Seann William Scott, I believe that his role as Stifler, from American Pie, will continue to haunt him for a long time. Just like how Mark Hamill will always be Luke Skywalker, Seann will most likely be unable to break away from his flagship role, which means that he will probably not be offered many gigs. Other major actors don't seem to have this problem, but I got my money on his career being stifled.

This movie was just like the preview, but it didn’t add much more in terms of new, humorous scenes. It’s one of those stupid comedies that passes the time with very low expectations.
