Tonight I'm blogging about "Role Models."
I love the goofy movies and that's one of the classics. Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott are perfect in the film. Everyone is. And it's good to see Nicole Randall Johnson ("Mad TV") in a good role.
Seann and Paul work together selling this awful energy drink to kids by going high school to high school. Seann loves the job while Paul hates it.
Paul hates everything. And that leads Elizabeth Banks (Avery from "30 Rock") to break up with him because she doesn't want to marry "a dick in a rut" (his description of himself). The break up enrages him and the day goes to hell ending with his running the company truck into a statue getting him and Seann sentenced to community service.
Enter Jane Lynch as the head of Sturdy Hands, an organization that matches "bigs" (adults) with "littles" (kids) in a big brother kind of way.
It's a really funny film.
Ronnie (Bobb'e J. Thompson) is the funniest. He's Wheeler's "little" and steals the show every time he's one. He's fond of calling Paul "Ben Affleck" and "Daredevil" and other Ben Affleck movies. "Why am I Ben Affleck?" "You White, ain't you," Ronnie responds.
It's a funny movie. The only thing I could do without is the KISS finale. The film's really over by that time and we didn't need a musical number.
But I'll take that to a bad pairing. Meaning? Seann William Scott would have been perfect as Paul Rudd's co-star in "I Love You, Man."
That was a good movie in every way except the dead actor they paired Paul Rudd with. (I'm not that crazy about that actor on "How I Met Your Mother" and he bores me in movies).
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
