Critic Reviews for Role Models
Rudd and Scott aren't stretching any new muscles, but Rudd's glum disaffection and Scott's bozo bonhomie do gel with a satisfying stickiness. They handle the gaping innuendo with such delicacy we know that they know they're better than this.
Role Models could have been another formulaic comedy, fresh off the assembly line. Instead, the work of Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott here is worthy of praise and one of the funnier films this year.
'Role Models' isn't trying to reinvent the wheel, just polish it up a little. What emerges is a memorable slice of modern slapstick, with charm to spare and just a touch of soul.
Rudd, who co-wrote the script with director David Wain (among others), clearly learned a few things working on Judd Apatow comedies.
Role Models follows a well-worn path, but thanks to a sure-footed cast and crew, it doesn't just go through the motions.
Audience Reviews for Role Models
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.
I can't imagine why I originally gave this 4 stars. It is pretty average.
Sean William Scott and Paul Rudd come together and produce a comical-bromantic-based story. With their costars shining as bright as the main stars, the film presents a funny atmosphere with the typical satirical feel. A clever script/plot bounded together with a joyous and hysterical hold. 4.5/5
