(Spoiler free) A movie made for pure love of the comic character, a character I've never really cared for, but he's had his moments in Woverine & team books. I thought this would be a one note movie and get dreary by the end. By adding a stellar supporting cast including the best cinematic Collossus yet, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, TJ Miller, Morena Borrocin, it really has a great range. In the middle of it all, there's this great Odd Couple situation…
Very solid. Rose Byrne is one of my favorite comedic actress, especially after knowing her first from Damages. She's a shameless, comedic pro. The film itself is a tight 90 minutes, there is no fat in terms of physics comedy or pacing. It's a loveletter to Animal House, but much more mellow and surprisingly deep. Roger is charming & likeable, Franco & Effron are great as bro-bags.
Kind of reminds me of Apatow flicks, but more direct and not as many meddling side plots. Direct to the funny.
We filled out an entire row in a theatre in Ottawa for this wannabe-Conan. Tia Carrere was better than this then, Harvey Fierstein raspy-voiced his gay-stereotype, & a friend left because they were ill from viewing it.
We ran out of there to hit each other with Singapore canes in the parking lot so we could feel something again, until the cops arrived. Once we explained how bad Kull was, they understood.
We were there, man. We were there.
