Better Than Expected
Verified purchase
This movie made me laugh out loud a few times - gotta love that. Friendship, hardship, mentoring kids, a little romance, forgiveness, etc. This isn't really a "family movie" though. I dont' know what it is rated, but one of the 2 boys being mentored is like 10. The language used and talk about boobies. . . I get that for a little boy with issues, like this character portrayed; however, for his mentor / father figure friend. . . not soo appropriate to me. I"m surprised that this movie went soooo much into the sex topic for an adult male and child character. It was a little much. If I had a ten year old, I wouldn't watch this movie with my ten year old. Other than that. . . the movie was five stars, but I gave it four stars only because of a little overdone with what I mentioned.

A very cynical Paul Rudd finds out that things aren't so bad by mentoring a kid
Verified purchase
Role Models was a comedy based upon a man named Danny (Paul Rudd) who was so cynical and jaded he couldn’t have a functioning relationship with anyone. His girlfriend Beth (Elizabeth Banks) leaves him because she can’t stand his attitude. His only friend is Wheeler (Seann William Scott) who he works with. They get in trouble and have to mentor two kids. One is foul mouthed pre-teen named Ronnie (Bobb’e Thompson) and the other named Augie (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) loves fantasy live action role playing. The movie is about whether Danny can find some purpose and joy in life and save his relationships with Beth and Wheeler, while mentoring Augie.

Overall the movie works because of the relationships between Danny and Augie and Wheeler and Ronnie. At first, having to mentor Augie just makes Danny hate his life even more. All the kid wants to do is talk about and play in his fantasy game. Ronnie is also great in his role. He makes Wheeler’s life a living hell at first. Eventually both of the adults bond with the kids and they become dynamic duos. The highlight is when they try to help Augie with his live action group and dress up like the band KISS in a giant battle royal. The king in the game is hilariously played by Ken Jeong. By finding empathy Danny eventually overcomes his personal problems and repairs his relationships.

Overall this is a very funny comedy with plenty of wisecracks and hilarious situations.

time flies, this one holds up well
Verified purchase
Admittedly I would watch Paul Rudd hold a dialog with a paper bag for a few hours, but this late 90s comedy holds up surprisingly well if you can stomach the typical American Pie -era raunch Its a really well-cast, well timed comedy about (mostly) the dynamics of friendship with some just incredibly accurate digs at that time period such as the entire premise of a long term career and endless promotional tours built around energy drinks (as a former promo girl its too real). The sex, drugs and language are dialed up a little more than necessary but it carries the plot that these two are no angels and need the help of the kids to find their souls again.

Our society is doomed because this has more than 4 stars
Verified purchase
The movie is exceedingly dumb and promotes immorality left and right. They keep misdefining "fun" these days consistently as debauchery. Yet it's quite manifestly NOT fun and brings about misery in life. Fun consists of attaining positive goals. The other "fun" leaves you with a feeling of emptiness.

The dialogue is also kind of telling, "I'm moving out" - "Wait, are you breaking up with me?" - those are the pearls you witness being said by the actors in this deplorable pseudo-comedy mainly based on some low pseudo humor.

Raunchy but funny!
Verified purchase
I like to watch this movie when I'm in the mood for some raunchy humor which I enjoy. I also really like Paul Rudd and that other guy I always forget his name. Anyway, I watch this when I'm kind of down and out and it tears me up. If you like silly kind of raunchy humor and just goofiness is a good movie to watch.

Outrageously bawdy but lighthearted comedy
Verified purchase
Coupla run-of-the-mill company dead-enders have a bad day and end up having to do community service as Big-Brother types, and the kids they're in charge of are both outcasts. Every actor playing their role was perfection, and the larping was a brilliant and funny scenario to play out all the relationships. I don't usually enjoy comedies because they're just not that funny, but this is so overtly over-the-top I laugh every time I watch it.

Some funny moments
Verified purchase
This film had some funny moments. It was cowritten by costar Paul Rudd. I like to think of Rudd as a for real nice guy like the parts he generally plays but the crudeness, smut and profanity that came out of the young black actor's mouth should be criminal and Rudd and company plus the child's parents should have been heavily fined and jailed over it. Shame on you "nice guy" Paul Rudd.

Hilarious
Verified purchase
Completely underrated and ridiculous. Paul Rudd at his best and don't sleep on the comedic timing of Sean William Scott aka Stifler. They're charging for all the classics I used to get in the $5 DVD bin back in the day but this is worth a rental fee if you haven't seen it or just haven't seen it lately. Great movie.
