Really, it's bad? I was hoping Charlie Day was at least good in it. But even a marginal flick like that might stay on my Netflix queue. At less than $1, it's worth checking to see if whatever the minuses are, aren't so minus to me.
Rotten Tomatoes seems to like it. So what do I know?
Netflix is giving me almost-4 stars. That's nicely over the bar I've set for rentals of 3 1/2 stars. Above that, I'll usually like the movie. (However, when a movie has just released, sometimes there simply aren't enough reviews for accuracy. That's another reason to wait for the DVD, by which time, the ratings have shaken out.)

Blockbuster to the rescue!

Rival Blockbuster has just pounced on Netflix's public relations problem, announcing that it is launching a nationwide promotion in which existing Netflix customers who switch to one of Blockbuster's two Total Access plans (1 disc at a time for $9.99 a month or 2 discs at a time for $14.99 a month) will receive a 30-day free trial.
WTF, that's $3 more than I can get at evil ole Netflix. No wonder they're bankrupt.
