David Wain directs Seann William Scott, Paul Rudd and Christopher Mintz-Plasse in this comedy where two losers become court appointed “big brothers” to a pair of wayward kids.
Easily one of the funniest Hollywood comedies of this century. Punch, punch, punch. Every performance lands. “You white, then you Ben Affleck.” Bobb’e J. Thompson is a particular find. Beyond the proven and very likeable leads this is teeming with comedy THAT GUY turns that are spot on; Jane Lynch, Ken Jeong, Ken Marino, Joe Lo Truglio. So we spend 10 minutes too many LARPing and then another 10 on sentiment at the end. When a comedy makes you laugh this much, this often, you can forgive it the excesses of its era.
