For those that know this cliché, you know what happens, for those that don't let me explain.

That basically becomes the premise of the movie, and a highly predictable one at that.

There are laughs here,and the "joust" between Thornton and Scott is compelling enough to keep with.

i rather enjoyed this movie, but thinking about it afterwards i thought it was a rather disjointed and hollow movie.

However my sinister anticipations were gladly disappointed and it turned out to be a very solid and enjoyable comedy.

The script has ups and downs in terms of gags, but the overall feeling is pleasantly entertaining.

The rivalry between the two is entertaining and lighthearted, I enjoyed watching "Mr Woodcock" a lot!

So we are treated to a boring character, played by a wooden Scott.

" Heck, even "Goodfellas and "Passion of the Christ" had more laughs than this pointless piece of dredge which takes the worst elements of "Meet the Parents" and "The Girl Most Likely To," although with none of the charm, intelligence or humor of these pictures.

The storyline is fairly cliché, some of the scenes were cheesy, but it was very enjoyable thanks to solid performances by Seann William Scott and Billy Bob Thornton.

Predictable with Scott attempting to sabotage the relationship thus heading to a corny redemptive ending.

Lousy and predictable, also very boring .

It's been done before, but, this one had a lot of laughs and I found it very enjoyable.

)So this is a terrible, terrible film, in my view, because of the unforgivable waste of time, talent and money.

It's also way more dull and boring, the story if it's even a story is just random and stupid.

Its simplistic plot and memorable actors could have made it into a rather nice movie but it is oh-so empty.

Well,maybe not every teen or adult loves this movie,but I really enjoyed it.

Pointless comedy with few laughs .

Mr.Woodcock is a boring comedy which did not produce me any laughs because all the jokes are clichéd and tired.

He goes out with Farley's mom, get engaged, and as the cliché goes, Farley tries to break them up.

I thought the movie was funny and just plain entertaining.

It's a good concept film and, in this case, thanks to Billy Bob, it comes out well, even if a bit empty in terms of the overall story.

It's boring, not interesting, not good and certainly annoying.

I would of preferred something unexpected.

This is the worst movie I have ever seen.

In other words, it's a good, enjoyable comedy.

It has some very funny moments, the premise is good and the execution is quite entertaining.

I would imagine this piece is more enjoyable for adults above the age of 25, as we reminisce on our freakish teenage years.

don't waste your time .

That's right, this movie was a waste of time and i think i lost a few more brain cells watching it.

Woodcock' is actually a funny,smart,and entertaining comedy that teens,especially boys,love.

The Screenplay moves from funny to becoming repetitive.

His role is toned down from the typical sidekick role to make way for both Scott and Thorton so he kind of gets lost as a pointless character.

Just everything about this film is predictable and has a lousy script to go with it.

It's predictable, its boring, it's not even mildly funny.

The gags are absolutely predictable and brainless.

In the new version of the BBTM, Thornton plays a gym teacher with a tedious name, introduced as he's pummeling little boys with basketballs, tormenting the ones who are overweight, stutter, or have asthma, infusing all of them with lifelong insecurities and nightmares.

The comedy, yet predictable, still makes you chuckle but can be a little boring.

Yes, we've all seen this feel good comedy before but the acting was good and it was fast paced enough that I didn't think it dwelled on the same joke or same part of the plot for too long.

Amy Poehler, of "SNL" infamy, tries to steal the show with her snappy one-liners.

This so-called comedy is horrendous on all levels, and worst of all--it's boring!

Speaking of predictability, here's a cliché for you: Seen the trailer?

Sadly, most of the best bits made their way to the trailers, making the movie seem like an empty shell.

Thornton produces a perfect mixture of boredom, deadly seriousness about how to play kickball with a thick top coat at delight in torturing fat kids and asthmatics.

Worth a look on a slow night on cable where you'll be more forgiving of the dull bits on the way to the good ones.
