Movie Info

After salesmen Danny (Paul Rudd) and Wheeler (Seann William Scott) trash a company truck, the court gives them a choice: jail time or community service in a mentoring program. Thinking to take the easy way out, the two overgrown adolescents find themselves paired with a teenager (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), who is experiencing the pangs of first love, and a foul-mouthed fifth-grader (Bobb'e J. Thompson), who needs an attitude adjustment.

    Too much fun! Two men-children become big brothers to a fantasy geek and a foul-mouthed delinquent, and heartwarming hilarity ensues. The inside look at the LARP community and the integration of the KISS motif culminates in some great deadpan humor, victorious redemption, and of course, ye olde goofy Englishisms.

    "Role Models" is funnier than a lot of the self-proclaimed 'raunchy' comedies of late because it's not as mean as them. On the outside, it seems like another simplistic, foul-mouthed flick about two deadbeats corrupting the youth, and while, in a way, it is, it's also a lot nicer, more sustained and has a sweeter message. It's quotable and likable, and Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott have some great comedic chemistry with one another. The main reason that it works is because it doesn't try to be anything more than a pleasant outing and that's precisely what it is. (A.D. Miles has the best character of the bunch. His "Love Me Take Down (To the Streets)" quotes are priceless.)

    Wain should be directing more films like Role Models. It is full of pop culture and a cast full of Wain characters from over the years. A good cast adds weight to a storyline that is designed for quick jokes, but you don't get so many of these. Role Models is funny and one of the better modern comedies that deserves a bigger core audience. 08/05/2019

    Brilliantly funny comedy Sean and Paul play their parts well but I must admit it's Bobb'e J that shines in this film he's really funny and cocky.
