I don’t know why, since it came out last year, but we just watched this yesterday. Gary said the trailers looked really bad at the time so I guess that’s why we didn’t. So it was on our dvr’d list and I was up in the night and thought it might be fun to watch. I ended up not watching the whole thing since I got sleepy, but told Gary next morning that I thought it was pretty funny after all and we should watch it.
If you at all miss the cringe factor of Michael Scott on The Office, I found Barry (Steve Carell) of this movie made up for it for me. A few times I was feeling my stomach knotting up just knowing he was going to do another appalling thing. Not that he was a copy of MScott. Similar but different.
I laughed out loud some (especially involving Paul Rudd with a back injury trying to navigate a step in his apartment and when Barry thinks it would be a good thing to apply heat to his new friend’s sore back). Zach Galifianakis appears, wearing a dickie all wrong,
and there’s Jemaine Clement that doesn’t wear much at all.
Ron Livingston works in Paul Rudd’s office space, too.
And I loved Paul Rudd’s girlfriend’s hair cut!
There were lame moments, lame scenes, but overall it was watchable and humorous and, bonus, you might learn a thing or two about taxidermy of mice. A little mousterpiece theatre!
