Mike has some funny bits, but it gets a little monotone after awhile. It begins to sound like he is reading from a script.

I grew up on House, so I was worried that Nelson (who I also grew up on, and still do) would somewhat ruin the film for me. While he does point out some of the silly aspects of the film, the joy for me in the film is still there. Nelson throws some great ones out there and some not so great, so it's hard to say anything besides "mediocre." He's done this for so long that it comes out pretty naturally, and he's seen so many bad films that he assumes this one is bad too and lets a few snide remarks out (ones unearned,) but it's forgivable for the fun ride he gives us.
