Bill I’s Review – Nutty out of 5
For some reason I really like to hear and see Seth Rogan, in any film (including Funny People) and in any role (seemingly playing himself in many cases). Same with Jonah Hill and more and more the same with James Franco, Craig Robinson and Danny McBride. Well, with all these guys in this film, including others of that vein such as Aziz Ansari and Michael Cera, I was predisposed to find this movie hilarious…which I DID!!!
I loved it, not expecting much of a meaningful plot, but I was smiling throughout. Emma Watson is a great surprise, along with Channing Tatum and some well hung devils. Don’t read about any of the scenes, just go and enjoy the wackiness.
Oh, I almost forget about Rihanna, playing a version of herself who does not let herself get slapped around.
Bill C’s Review – 4 out of 5
I also loved this movie! All the actors are playing fictionalized versions of themselves during the rapture. Luckily they don’t take their persona’s very seriously and they have a great time making fun of their perceived selves. So much is going on in this movie that I might go back to see it again just to see some of the stuff I missed.
My only criticism is it probably could have been a little shorter and like Pineapple Express got a little too involved with the action instead of just focusing on the comedy at the end. This is definitely my favorite movie of the summer so far.
Fans of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (writes of the movie should check out this great interview on the WTF podcast.
