Are you goddamn kidding me? You didn't think Kick-Ass was funny? One exchange in particular made me laugh OUT LOUD.
Mobster: "He doesn't have the balls. -Kick-Ass shoots him in the genitals- Oh my sweet Virgin Mary... HE SHOT ME IN THE FUCKING TUNK!"
Kick-Ass: "I can't believe how fast that shit caught on."
Granted, it's not wacky teen comedy funny, which is what the trailers pretty much look like, but it's still a funny comic if you have a sick sense of humor.
("tunk" was a word that Kick-Ass's friends at school came up with and asked him to help spread around, for those keeping score at home. A vulgar reference to one's "cock-and-balls": the male equivalent of "cunt")
