Role Models

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.

Nov 10, 2008 - eiodland on Role Models
Pretty funny movie to watch once

Although it starts off with a lot of really cheap humor, Role Models picks up around the middle and provides a few good laughs. Seann Scott seems to always play characters whose names end in "ler," and he's never particularly amusing. However, many of the other actors do a good job, especially the little nerd and some of his cohorts. A lot of the cast of "Wet Hot American Summer" seemed to be present, which is good because there were some funny people in that film.
The humor aside, "Role Models" has a fairly interesting premise -- two guys are each forced to mentor a troubled child in order to fulfill some community service. There are a lot of stories you can write with that premise, and "Role Models" pulls it off fairly well. The plot is engaging enough, and the characters are developed well.
While "Role Models" is not really good enough to justify watching more than once, it's entertaining despite some of the cheap jokes and semi-predictable plot.
