Role Models, I loved the trailers and previews from the commercials. So I had to see this movie. Finally had the time to go out and see it last night. This movie didn’t just have laughs but it’s one of those “feel good” movies. It was also good to see Seann William Scott back as he played Wheeler in this movie. We haven’t seen him for a while.
Here is a short description of this movie. Danny Donahue (Paul Rudd) and Wheeler works for a energy drink company for 10 years. All they do is go around schools to tell kids stay off drugs and drink these energy drinks instead. Danny is the speaker and Wheeler wears this Minotaur custom and all he says is “Taste the Beast!” Danny is going through a crisis where he feels he is going no where in his life. He begins to hate the world and everything around him. He thought it was time for a change so he ask his lawyer girlfriend (Elizabeth Banks), to marry him but gets turned down because Danny has become a big Dick (excuse my language).
Danny felt it couldn’t get any worse for him. But it did and he just snaps. He drives his truck onto this schools statue of a horse and almost kills a cop. For that, Danny and Wheeler gets arrested. They either have to do hard time for 30 days or 150 hours of community service. They chose to do community service so that takes them to a place called “Sturdy Wings,” which is a menotring program for kids. Danny gets this 16 year old boy, Augie Farks (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), a nerd who life revolves around this fantasy medevil times role playing game. Wheeler gets Ronnie ( Bobb’e J. Thompson) an 11 year old boy who has a bad mouth and loves boobies. They come to realize that jail isn’t half bad when they first meet these boys and the woman in charge of this place, Sweeny (Jane Lynch). Danny and Wheeler are learning from these boys as well.I’ll end it here incase you haven’t watched it but it just keeps getting funnier and funnier.
Wheeler and Ronnie together is just a perfect combination for big laughs. Ronnie says the funniest stuff and Wheeler does the dumbest things. “I don’t want to take my clothes off!” That part was so funny when Ronnie said that. Not a bad story and I walked out of there feeling good. I needed a good laugh.
Should you go watch this movie? Yes, if you want good laughs its worth to go watch it.
