I laughed my ass off. But by the time Jonah Hill does back-flips to profess his platonic love for Channing Tatum, I was ready to scream. First two-thirds, which is just pure riffing, are terrific. Final third is mostly inert and sometimes toxically stupid. That's the point when the idea of swapping one set of stereotypes for another stops being funny and starts being taken semi-seriously. Which sucks, especially since I really did laugh my ass off. Anybody got a spare, a har har?
