Two salesmen trash a company truck on an energy drink-fueled bender. Upon their arrest, the court gives them a choice: do hard time or spend 150 service hours with a mentorship program. After one day with the kids, however, jail doesn't look half bad.
Danny: Can I get a large black coffee?
Barista: A what?
Danny: Large black coffee.
Barista: Do you mean a venti?
Danny: No, I mean a large.
Barista: Venti is large.
Danny: No, venti is twenty. Large is large. In fact, tall is large and grande is Spanish for large. Venti is the only one that doesn't mean large. It's also the only one that's Italian. Congratulations, you're stupid in three languages.
Barista: A venti is a large coffee.
Danny: Really? Says who? Fellini? Do you accept lira or is it all euros now?
How had I never seen this before?
Predictable and cheap.
Which is kind of a big deal in a comedy.
I bet if I suggested a game of Quidditch he'd cum in his pants.
While I was extremely disappointed with David Wain's last directorial effort in Wanderlust, I can honestly say that it seems his other works still hold up. Since that disappointment I've revisited with great results Childrens Hospital, Wet Hot American Summer and now Role Models. The web series and two films seem to get better with each viewing with the latter is still my favorite film of his.
Role Models is basically a coming of age film, but not one for the two kids that are in it, but rather the mid-30s cynic as all hell Gen-Xer Danny as played by Paul Rudd. What's funny is…
Wain seems to bring an unabashed earnestness and uncynical message to many of his films - something I really respond to.
I love that he takes time to develop the characters and their relationships, and that most of the comedy comes from the circumstances and mostly the delivery. It is a good thing that he has built this troupe of very talented comedians like Jane Lynch, Ken Marino, Joe LoTruglio and Paul Rudd who are very reliable.
When I first saw it when it came out I wasn't as taken with it, but revisiting it now everything just clicked. I loved this film and think I'll like it more and more on rewatches. Overall it's my third favourite out of the four films of his I've seen, but that says more about Wain's career rather than the film itself.
"Fuck you Ms. Daisy."
Very funny movie. I loved every character in this film, but was completely taken by suprise by Bobbe Thompson who played Ronnie, one of the kids that is being mentored by Sean William Scott and Paul Rudd in the movie. Ronnie is a 5th grader who acts more like a teenager always cussing, smart mouthing everyone, and very interested in women. His mentor is none other than Wheeler (Sean William Scott who plays the same character he always does, a grown up adolescent) and they are just hillarious together on screen. Paul Rudd is excellent in this film as he plays a very unhappy and satircal character named Danny who has to mentor Christopher Mintz-Plasse (famous for his role as…
" What I'm trying to say is that when I get out of prison, can I hang out with your ten-year-old son?"
I laughed quite a bit the first time I saw Role Models, and that didn't change on this re-watch.
Paul Rudd and Sean William Scott play off of each other well, and their situations with their "littles" is funny stuff. The "littles" are played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Bobb'e J. Thompson both of whom are funny in their roles. We also get Elizabeth Banks in a minor role and Jane Lynch who gives a kooky performance as Sweeny the founder of Sturdy Wings.
The plot is simple as expected with a film merely looking for laughs, but it's…
One of the best modern comedies out there. Gets it right on every single level. Never gets old. Watch it now!!!! This and superbad are classics!
'Shut up Ben Affleck'
Percibo un verdadero huracán de diversión en el rodaje de la película. Celebro eso.
"Love take me down to the streets!"
With Anchorman and Zoolander now ruined all I can say is:
Please. Never make a sequel to this.
Filling guilty for enjoying this movie so much..
No matter how many times I see this, it never gets old. This movie is one I always point to when I talk about how vulgar dumb movies can be smart. Yes, it's got all of your typical sex humor and jokes about defecation, nakedness, etc. But you've got compelling characters brought to life by good actors. Paul Rudd is great, Seann William Scott is charming, and Jane Lynch steals the show. This is a fun movie and one I highly recommend.
