Dumb, dumb-dumb-dumb, dumb

Carmen Electra as Fay WrayIn this masturbative inanity, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the duo who scripted Scary Movie, spoof recent romantic staples like Hitch, Bridget Jones, and My Big Fat Greek Wedding. The two may be able to pen a laugh, but behind the camera, their sense of comedy dies. Chubby Greek dumpling Julia Jones (Alyson Hannigan) is lovelorn and self-loathing until she gets a Pimp My Ride makeover and meets hunky doctor Grant (Adam Campbell, a poor man’s Jude Law). The two consummate their affection by beating the shit out of a bum, and they seem destined for marital bliss until Grant’s slinky ex, Andy (a leggy Sophie Monk), throws a wrench into their plans. None of it matters. Besides the Cheney-esque shotgun elimination round on a Bachelor-style TV show, everything’s reduced to an inane fart or ejaculation joke.
