saying that the movie would suck by removing him is irrelevant because he was a huge part of the movie, it's like saying taxi driver would suck if you removed robert deniro's character (as you know i already think it sucked, i'm just making a point.) his character was absolutely hilarious and it helped to make the movie hilarious. the fake previews were great, and i really can't think of a single scene which seemed out of place or unnecessary. the movie is incredibly well written and was pulled off perfectly imo.
