FELL OFF NOT FUNNY MAILS IT IN

Every now and then, Owen Wilson will surprise us with another likeable comedic performance; after all, he did co-star in undeniably funny movies like Zoolander and Wedding Crashers. But credits of that caliber are rarities on his filmography. Most of the time, Wilson appears to be on the verge of laughter, even when scenes call for anything but giggles, and that's rather off-putting. It's as if Comedy Central plays on loop inside his brain, and he's trying his damndest not to explode in hysterics. And nobody likes to be excluded from a joke, especially ticket-buying audience members.
