Role Models¬† (Rated R)
Gavin Grade:¬† B
I had a lot of hope for this comedy staring Paul Rudd and Sean William Scott.¬† That's because creators David Wain and Ken Marino are two of the masterminds behind the cult sketch comedy MTV show from the '90s, "The State."¬† It's a classic buddy comedy where two guys find themselves put in a position of court-ordered Community Service at a group for kids.¬† The two they're paired up with is a foul mouth kid, who's played by newcomer Bobb'e Thompson and a Renaissance Fair nerd played by Christopher Mintz-Plaase, who you'll recognize instantly as McLovin from "Superbad."¬† Don't get me wrong, the movie is funny; but I expected more.¬† Wain and Marino created two other movies called "Wet Hot American Summer" and "The Ten."¬† Both are in my Top 30 favorite comedies of all time.¬† The trap I fell into was expecting that again.¬† Those movies are quirky, weird and not for everyone.¬† "Role Models" is more mainstream.¬† So that means that just because I didn't like it that much, you probably will.
