This movie exists solely to make the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon game easier to play. (Bacon and Emma Stone were in Crazy Stupid Love).

I don't know how or why all these famous people got together to make such an atrocious movie. It's like the worst ideas from Saturday Night Live were thrown into a stew with the worst ideas from South Park, and that stew was then cursed by an evil witch seeking revenge against the townspeople who burned her mother 400 years ago.

Actually there was one skit that was funny. The Terrence Howard one, where he's a 1950's basketball coach trying to inspire his team by pointing out that "you're black, they're white, YOU'RE GOING TO WIN!" and the team not believing him.  Everything else in the movie is horrific and terrible.
