I had a couple of friends over for dinner Thursday night. We watched Role Models after a nice walk.
Paul Rudd and Sean William Scott work brilliantly together, often delivering hilarious deadpan lines to Jane Lynch, lines good enough that they seem completely natural. I have yet to see Rudd play an unfunny role, and he doesn't disappoint here. All actors deliver yeoman work. Some of the plot elements are predictable, but that's not always a bad thing. If you can handle crudeness, language, and a bit of nudity, watch the movie. 4 stars.
I watched Watchmen Friday night. What follows will probably be my shortest movie review ever. Here it is: What a waste. I give it 1 star for good special effects and half a star for one interesting character.
I watched Pineapple Express recently. Seth Rogen is properly known for his comic roles, and James Franco fills his own role as a stoned pot dealer. The plot works well enough, but what propels this from a very decent 3.5 to 4 stars is some incredible dialog, typically given by Seth Rogen. Violence and language and frequent drug usage.
