I don't think it would. Surprisingly he actually impressed me in parts with how fast his hands were and how athletic he could be for such a big guy. Add in some great fight scenes, some inspirational parts, some hillarious comedy and you have a winner in my books.

Good to hear.

I actually really like Kevin James. His stand-up was awesome (specifically "Sweat the Small Stuff) and I loved King of Queens. His movies have been disappointing but I always saw potential. Most of his stuff is too slapsticky and I don't think he needs to do that. Then again, most of his stuff seems to have been geared for younger viewers. Despite the negative reviews, I thought Paul Blart wasn't too bad. Mind you, I was disappointed but I thought it was a cleaner version of Observe and Report (which I thought didn't think was much better than Mall Cop even though the reviews slammed Mall Cop and recommended Observe/Report).

Anyway, I keep hoping Kevin James' movies are better. Not sure why I care. Maybe because a lot of people compare me to him Thankfully, it's not ONLY because of appearance but personality as well (more specifically his character on King of Queens).

Oh, I also wanted to say that he's very athletic despite being bigger (again, I can relate, lol). He showed some of it on the show King of Queens. While not athletic, there was an episode he worked the stripper pole and was, um, how to say...agile?

Ooh, also just saw "V/H/S" the other day. If you're into nasty horror it's a good one. It's 5 short stories, some definitely better than the others, but all pretty interesting, and all quite nasty.

Also saw "1408" with John Cusak, which was okay, but seemed to go on too long. Another horror flick.

The Campaign: - Though there were some real funny parts but the movie as a whole was kinda blah. It's worth a $2 rental. 3/5

The Cabin In The Woods - Loved this movie. Loved that it kept you thinking on trying to figure out what was gonna happen. Was more of a Sixth Sense style movie then a actual horror movie. Highly recommend. 5/5

The Avengers - Was a decent movie but VERY LONG and slow in some parts. Bigger X-Men and Spider-Man fan. Didn't grow up reading comics of any of the Avengers, so had no personal ties to the characters. Loved the Thor character, will probably watch the Thor movie now. And of course Robert Downey Jr., was great as Ironman. Overall a decent movie if you can stand the 2 1/2 hours. 3/5

I also saw the Campaign and it was pretty funny. Not Anchorman funny but worth a look. 3.5/5

The Watch was disappointing. With that cast it should have been alot funnier. 2.5/5

Savages. I thought this movie would be very good but it was not. 2/5

I thought Cabin in the Woods was great.

Savages was okay, enough to hold my interest that I finished watching it. The Watch was pretty damn funny I thought. Certainly crude in some parts but you have to expect that with the cast. I cant believe you (or anyone else) believes Anchorman is comedy gold but wouldn't find The Watch funny.

I didnt say it wasnt funny, it was. i just thought with Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill it should have been better. I love crude, there is no such thing as too crude

Anchorman IS the gold standard for comedy. That is all.
