I love the series.. for whatever reason I couldn't tell you. Probably because I realized awhile ago that the first one was absolutely hilarious.. like.. I see it as a comedy. I like the tuna here, I never narc'd on nobody, you can have any beer you want as long as it's Corona, THE BUSTER KEPT ME OUT OF HANDCUFFS, I know that movie by heart.
And when I discovered one of my best friends recognized the same absurd comedy and awesomely stupid things about that movie.. it became one of my favorites. The 2nd was cheesy in the fun kind of way.. 3rd was dumb.. 4th brought everyone back.. and the 5th was legitimately a great action movie sequel. The 6th wasn't as good as the 5th, but still a damn entertaining movie. The 7th would have been as great.. and I'm sure they'll do the best they can.. but it won't be the same without Paul.
Despite the great box office numbers, it's still kind of a cult series to me. So if people aren't into it or don't get the humor/appeal.. that's cool. I love them, though.
