Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt's second collaboration with director Jonathan Levine. F*cked up film with a messed-whacky story and some screwed characters. Some jokes made me laugh (especially when a certain character got high). I had no idea if it's a twist, but it's quite surprising. Not great, but not bad. This film is simply hilarious and enjoyable.
A lightweight, raunchy, unessential holiday flick. Even though I am the perfect target demographic for this film (a millennial, born in the early 90's, who grew up watching Home Alone 1&2 on repeat), it's sad how little this movie matters. As a Jonathan Levine fan, I'm sad to say he's taking a career detour in the vein of David Gordan Green circa 2010. If you're drunk or stoned, you could do much worse.
Like many recent, male-centric comedies, it is genuinely interested in themes of maturation, but we've seen those dramatic concerns to the point of cliche, and JGL and Mackie are better actors than they are comedians. You can teach a man to fish, but you can't teach a fish to be funny - I don't know, something like that. Michael Shannon, however, is brilliant...
"If you've seen one Seth Rogen film, you've seen them all"? Don't care. This bromantic festive ride is a bit of a treat. Much like 'Bachelorette', it fits its criteria as an unapologetically witty, sub-culturally savvy, low-brow comedy caper. Michael Shannon's cameo as a quietly intense drug dealer just about steals the show. Great ensemble to boot.
Film natalizio defaticante, un'interpretazione delirante di "A Christmas Carol" (con Grinch annesso), ho riso come un'ossesso godendomi ogni stupidità e volgarità, riuscendo pure a sopportare il cameo di Miley Cyrus . E lo farei ancora! Particolare menzione d'onore a Michael Shannon nei panni di Mr.Green.
