The wacky supporting cast did their best with a weak script. Isla Fisher's character is Denise, Rod's next door neighbor and love interest. She's a good actress and the fiancee of Sacha Baron Cohen of Borat. Sissy Spacek as Rod's mother was a waste of good talent. Bill Hader, Danny R. McBride, Will Arnett, and Chris Parnell supplied some humor, but the dialogue was too far over the top to be good.
This slapstick comedy tried to give a gift-wrapped ending to Rod the Nerd by making him a hero, but in my mind it did not make a difference. This movie resulted in nonsense and a waste of time.
