Worst: Obvious gross jokes
There's one gross joke in the film that is borderline great, involving a cow with a taste for beef, and I salute them for the way they put it together. It's weird and out of left field and it works. But so much of this feels like they went for the first idea they had and never pushed any further than that. They go swimming in a mysterious water hole. Gee, I wonder what will be in there. Poop? YOU DON'T SAY! It's easy to get an audience to gag, but making them laugh at something horrible in a real way is a genuine skill.
