This is a compilation of all feature films that have played at Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX from 2005 through…
They're about to get more than they plea-bargained for.
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…
A selfish adult's coming of age story... of course it speaks to Gen-Xers!
Not as funny as I remember it being, but still has a lot of good laughs in it.
For Directors Club Podcast: David Wain. Coming soon.
Something about young kids constantly swearing that makes me laugh.
This movie definitely made me laugh.
I watched this one with my girlfriend because we needed a night of laughs after a really crappy day. About halfway through the movie I realized I was the only one laughing. I asked her about it, and she said, "I'll start laughing when the movie starts being funny."
This caused me to start analyzing the movie to try to prove it was funny, since that's how I roll. But as I started doing so, I realized that part of the problem is that ROLE MODELS is a movie pretty squarely meant for a male audience. It is David Wain's version of a Judd Apatow picture, packed with the absurdist non-sequiturs and strange logic found in WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER,…
Gave me a few giggles........bored me some........Paul Rudd saved it......he's a funny fucker.....
This might be David Wain's most straightforward movie, and although I love random humor, in this case, the lack of it makes the movie better.
Thanks to a wonderful performances from the cast, especially always charming Paul Rudd, Role Models delivers a lot of laughs, but doesn't forget about character development and heart.
Role Models is a hilarious comedy film with a really funny concept.
Role Models is a funny comedy and well acted by a funny cast which mixes humour and a heart warming backing to create what I think is an underrated film. A solid kind of good film this is worth a watch and with laughter to match you whilst watching then it is even more advisable. Here below is why I think this film is a good one.
The story as said is funny yet warm and although is mostly humour of which can be sometimes very crude(mostly from Seann William Scott), it is still warm also and the ending as you may see is really quite happy and tender. It is fast comedy and things start straight away as you…
I've been watching so many good films lately - ranging from Southpaw to Watchmen.I wouldn't have watched Watchmen if it…
