I heard a lot of good things about this movie and have to admit I’m a bit disappointed. Here are my theories:
- We saw the unrated version. As with The 40-Year Old Virgin, the extra swearing and grossouts were not funnier, and actually detracted from the movie. Thus, it was less funny than the theater version.
- Not enough Harold Ramis.
- Not enough of that guy with the beard.
- I don’t think drug jokes are funny.
I did like the tender hearted stuff, and the complex love/hate relationship between Audrey(?)’s sister and her husband was pretty interesting, as a crafted object. Seth Rogan’s character was a lot less likable than I thought he would be. I expected Mitch from old school, and got the Tank instead.
