Rating: 5 Skulls
A high-school comedy about two best friends facing separation anxiety as they prepare to go off to college. Attempting to score alcohol for a party (believing that the babes will follow) the boys' evening quickly dissolves into chaos.
I just watched this movie, for the very first time, and found it to be absolutely hysterical ~ laugh-out-loud funny! [I watched this while my son was taking his nap, and I am surprised that he slept through my constant laughing!] :-)
If you have not yet seen this movie, I definitely recommend it, though be warned: it is extremely crude & raunchy, and it has a ton of language! (If you are easilly offended, then this movie is not for you!)
Aside from that though, the movie is superbly well written by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg. Actually, the two main characters are named Seth & Evan - I wonder if Rogen & Goldberg were writing from experience :-)
Seth Rogen (who, I think, is one of the funniest actors out there) and Bill Hader play two dim-witted police offers, who are an absolute riot!
One of my favorite scenes in the movie is when Seth (the character/played by Jonah Hill) admits to his best friend Evan, that when he was younger he had an unhealthy obsession with drawing a certain part of the human anatomy. . . I had tears in my eyes, I was laughing so hard! :-)
Another favorite part is when the three friends (Seth, Evan, and Fogell - aka McLOVIN) attempt to score some alcohol from a Liquor store. . . 1st Seth and then Fogell. . . Too funny!!! This movie is one that can be watched repeatedly and will be just as funny, every time!
