Duh. Sounds too much like "Chuck" which was too much like "Jake 2.0"... They should have stuck with the Don Adams formula. Dumb or vacuous characters usually work for Jack Black and Will Farrell. This movie doesn't seem funny at all. About as misguided as the "I Spy" turd a few years ago or the "Underdog" cartoon. Sometimes a remake should NOT reinvent something done right.
