Guess I'm just excited that it's not awful.
Watched Spring Breakdown on Netflix (watch instantly, dudes!) and it was totally fun for a dumb comedy, with actors who are of course much funnier than the script. You know Dratch, Poehler, and Parker Posey are in it, but there are lots of other ladies too, like Jane Lynch, and Millie from Freaks and Geeks, and Ann from Arrested Devel (who?), and you guys even a super brief Mary Cherry appearance....
