movie coverI'd rather be watching TV![IMDB link] [Netflix link]

PEOPLE: Will Farrel, and John C. Reilly (Dr. Steve Brule from Tim & Eric!). Written by Adam McKey (Talladega Nights, Anchorman) & Will Farrel. Also with Mary Steenburgen (looking very hot for 55! I thought she was a bit old 18 yrs ago in Back To The Future 3!), Richard Jenkins (the dead dad from Six Feet Under), Adam Scott, Kathryn Hahn (Anchorman, and Edina in the new american Ab Fab / Absolutely Fabulous remake series)…. And a short scene with Seth Rogan (This is a Judd Apatow production, after all.)

Kathryn Hahn’s few scenes are possibly her most erotic & funny scenes ever. Her comedic lust was inspiring. “I want to roll you up in a little ball and keep you in my vagina.” Haha.

QUIRKS: Two grown men acting like children, and the hilarity that ensues.

SOUNDTRACK: Vampire Weekend, LCD Soundsystem, Vanilla Ice, an a capella version of Guns N’ Roses Sweet Child O’ Mine, Hall & Oates, Billy Joel, The Kinks, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones.

MORALS: You can only live with your parents for so long.

BAD STUFF/CONCLUSION: This was pretty funny — and Farrel and Reilly are a great combination with great chemistry. However, it could have been funnier. A lot of the humor was basically “watch grown men act like children”. While that is a funny gimmick, it doesn’t remove the responsibility to make every joke funny. A responsibility which I think ultimately was not quite fulfilled.

RATINGS: Netflix: Clint: 3/5 stars, Carolyn 4/5 stars. IMDB: Clint: 7/10, Carolyn 8/10.

RECOMMENDATION: Worth seeing, but not a top tier comedy.

MOVIE QUOTE: Brennan Huff: This house is a fucking prison!
Dale Doback: On Planet Bullshit!
Brennan Huff: In the galaxy of This Sucks Camel Dicks!

FRIENDS’ RATINGS: Scott S, Jordan, and Benj all really liked it (4/5 stars).

Mood: rested, finally
Music: The Beachles – God Only Knows What I’d Be Within You
