Watch this

Last night we watched a funny movie, so I thought I'd pass along the rec to my goofy comedy-loving friends out there. It was Role Models with Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott (yes, Stifler, but don't let that ruin it for you - he's actually really funny in this!). I was skeptical about it but Jim remembered that Entertainment Weekly reviewed it and said it was surprisingly good, so we watched it. It was really funny! There were some hysterical lines, so of course we burned it and will be watching it again so I can add them to my repetoire. (blush)

It also stars Elisabeth Banks, who is a pretty funny young actress (I liked her in Zack & Miri), and Jane Lynch, who my Christopher Guest peeps know as being one funny beyotch. For real - she rules. It also features the kid who plays McLovin in Superbad.

There are two extremely sappy parts, but they don't negate the hilarity. You'll recognize the cheesy parts when you see them... trust me. Anyway, if you're looking for a funny movie and don't mind a little raunchy humor (and if you're reading my blog, you don't), check it out.

Ant and I watched this movie recently too, and we both really liked it. But, I pretty much like anything that makes my husband squeal like a little girl. His laugh is hysterical. I have even witnessed him jumping up and down holding on to his knees from laughing so can't help but laugh when he is laughing.

Hey Bev, haven't seen this one but I'll add it to the ol' Netflix queue (which of course means I should return the one that's been sitting on my table for 3 weeks).
That Elizabeth Banks is a hottie... can't believe she's family! Yeah, Joe's cousin from Pittsfield, MA. The MIL always gets all excited when Elizabeth has a new movie. Would have loved to seen her go to the 'Miri Makes a Porno".. HA HA!

Harmony - LOVE that description of your husband's laugh! He sounds awesome! Love it.

Mala - That's right! Joe's always talking about how she's a distant cousin. Grandfathers were brothers or something, right? Very cool! Definitely check this movie out; you and Joe will both love it. Zack & Miri was just okay, but I laughed at a few parts.

I heard bad reviews of that and blew it off. I'm glad you posted this. I'll give it a shot.

Stifler is a funny guy. He was great Road Trip and his brief appearance in Old School (he shot Will Ferrell with the tranq dart).

E. Banks is a cutie, too.
