This is actually a good bad-comedy to watch having a beer: it won't kill you but it won't help your intelectual growth; it won't make you die from laughing but it won't keep you sleepy: a blockbuster harmless 90-min thing.
Another comedy from a very familiar group of people. Paul Rudd is great, as always, while Justin Theroux surprisingly steals the show. Jennifer Aniston has her moments (although it's nearly painful having to watch her now-plastic face move as it does). Ultimately, it's a movie that makes very obvious jokes about hippies, leftist culture, communes, and for somebody who enjoys criticizing that... it's fun.
El lado mas contenido de D Wain (el mismo que mostró en la genial "Role Models") aparece una vez mas en esta historia de una pareja cansada de la presión social de ser exitoso que termina viviendo en una comuna hippie. Aniston y Rudd cumplen con sus personajes, pero la verdadera riqueza de la película proviene de los personajes secundarios, a los que Wain siempre sabe darles un privilegiado lugar sin jamas opacarse.
Really good ensemble, nothing to take too serious, just a consistently funny film. A lot of great moments, a few lulls when things get too "serious" but that subsides long after you forget it. The film moves along quickly and the cast is all game. Paul Rudd has a great scene involving a mirror that I believe rivals Deniro's mirror scene in Taxi Driver except funnier!
A spotty comedy, but it's not often I come across a comedy that manages to be crude and hilarious all the while maintaining taste and being just so damn kind-hearted. I didn't love this, but I did really like it. Paul Rudd has room to be his awkward self (not enough for my liking), and Aniston is as good as she has been in a while, so likable. In a routine final 20mins it loses steam, still a 3.5/5 from me...see it!
