  1. Where on the evolutionary scale of wacky-dudes-learn-to-grow-up movies does Role Models fall? Certainly less evolved than "Meatballs," but head and hairy knuckles above "Daddy Day Care" or "The Benchwarmers."

    If "Models'" comedy is a bore, the characters' redemption is sheer agony – not to mention the shameless pop-cultural referencing that repeats like a bad taco.

    Role Models sadly does fall for the cliche that little kids saying swear words is still funny, but still Paul Rudd, Sean William Scott and Jane Lynch give very impressive performances which is too much to resist. I give this movie 64%. Full Review »

    The two mains are good, Paul Rudd especially. But the real star of the show is Christopher Mintz Plasse as nerd Auggie Farks. His performance is hilarious and almost as good as the legendary McLovin in Superbad. I would say that Role Models is a very funny film which will definitely entertain you, mainly because of Christopher Mintz Plasse being on hilarious form. Full Review »
