The writers probably did not appear to care of looking silly, given the amount of stupid events that happen (e.g. some oversized guy touches crotch of another for some supernatural healing). The direction is competent though, and so is some of the acting. My favorite was Sam Rockwell even though he was not convincing in the role; he was just fun to watch. Another good one was by Doug Hutchison as the hateful, and easy-to-hate, prison guard. Michael Clark Duncan has an admirable body, but am curious how it happened they decided to cast him for the role. It is just so pointless, but I really love his body. Its size is however inconsistently exagerrated.
