Netflix Review: Role Models

March 14, 2009



In the interest of brevity, as we sit on the eve of Selection Sunday, I’ve thrown in my review of this film posted a few minutes ago on Twitter.

twitter-home_1237062601856Not much more to say about it than that. The film is really carried by Rudd and a surprisingly-decent performance by McLovin’  Christopher Mintz-Plasse. 13-year-old Bobbe J. Thompson steals every scene he’s in and is hilarious throughout (as he did during his guest stint on Human Giant where he played himself as the head of Child Casting Agency, Shutterbugs). Sean William Scott players Stiffler again. Elizabeth Bank is underutilized and forgettable and the best performances of the film are turned in by Rudd, Thompson and Jane Lynch. 

Grade: B-
