"Funny People" is billed as a comedy, and isn't. Given that there it is about stand up comedians, there are a fair number of funny one liners, but for the most part this is just another iteration of stupid people being unhappy. I expected this to have more substance than Judd Apatow's previous films, and it does, but I also expected it to be at least a bit enjoyable, and it isn't.
"Aliens in the Attic" is mindless and silly. If you know that going in, and go in anyway, it is also fun. There are times when all I want from a movie is an anaesthetic effect, and this movie was just fine for that.
