Excellent film


Really enjoyed it. Wouldn't have expected to. The premise sounds tedious, and I'm not a fan of Pete Davidson's comedy. (No offense, Pete. It's not just you, I haven't liked SNL for 30 years.)

In fact, if I'd read the IMDB summary or noticed that he was the star, I doubt I would have even started the thing. Glad I went in knowing nothing, or I probably would have missed this gem.

I liked it more than I thought I would too. I laughed quite a bit. Like most Apatow films, it ran a little long, but I enjoyed the character arc.

Also, Bill Burr is great! Had no idea he was in the film until he showed up with that handle bar mustache, haha. One of the best comics out there today!

eh, it was alright. I don't think it is worth paying to watch in a theater, but watching it on HBO when I had nothing else to do wasn't a waste.

Fascinating, since I just turned this off seconds into the movie when he causes an accident on the highway. Why did you want to continue watching? I am really curious, because I cannot really care about this guy no matter what might have happened to him. I think people who watch stuff like this, and so many movies are like this - overdramatic and showing people behaving like idiots, that people do indeed behave like idiots these days ... I think even more than they used to in the past.

I'm afraid I didn't take detailed notes, and I don't have access to the movie at the moment, so I regret that I cannot answer. I should let you know that I am an ecclectic viewer though, and what grabs me about a movie may not grab other audience members.

Well, me too, but I have my frickin' limits with all these goofball movies that come out so often. What a colossal waste of time and money.
