Role Models

"Slackers Danny (Paul Rudd) and Wheeler (Seann William Scott) have coasted their way through jobs at an energy drink company. When their goofing off catches up with them, they're sentenced to community service with the Sturdy Wings mentoring program. The assignment is supposed to teach them responsibility, but it just proves that they're the last people who should be in charge of kids. Elizabeth Banks co-stars in David Wain's sidesplitting comedy" courtesy of netflix

I couldn't stand this movie I actually took it out and didn't finish it. it was so predictable and lame and boring. two mean slacker guys get paired up with bratty shitty kids and in the end they become good friends. blah blah blah. i was so upset because I really like Paul Rudd and there will small parts in the movie that really shined "paul rudd" but the majorty was just boring or just too scripted. like the director of "sturdy wings" you will recognize her from '40 year old virgin' and she plays the exact same charcter in the same style - a former druggie sex addict and she says little stupid things "me and the judge are really close, im not gonna get into it but i sucked his dick for drugs" and the dialogue just isnt realistic and its so stereotypical to have this really ghetto gangster kid and then the really nerdy dungeons and dragons kid which actually just gets boring watching the "battle" because its not for comedy you end up just actually watching it.

ALTHOUGH i did love the scene where Paul Rudd tears into this Barista
"I'd like a large coffee"
"do you meam venti?"
"no i mean large"
"venti is large"
"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."

hahaha -- then like 2 seconds later his girlfriend yells at him and says "its called venti because its 20 oz dipshit" haha


  1. Kylee. OMG. we share a brain. we really do. I just mailed this movie back yesterday without watching the rest of it. I was SO disappointed in the movie because it starred Paul Rudd. And i did love the seen about the venti coffee, but truly that was IT. I didn't watch but about 5 minutes beyond that scene. It was so dumb.

  2. oops i wrote 'seen' and of course i meant 'scene'.

  3. yeah i felted the same, it wasnt enough real rudd in it. the venti coffee was definitley him.
