I'm not arguing against your opinion though as I have no problems with people thinking differently than me about the movie. Just to be clear.
I see what you mean now. Yeah I must have gotten it backwards or something. I blame my tired head due to loads of studies :P Overall I just feel they didn't give the story much thought at all and just went along with it and were lazy: instead of coming up with things that could have some depth they went the easy route. Like they always had in mind "How can me make a joke there?" for everything they came up with.
No offense taken, and I hope that's likewise for you.
