Surprisingly before today I have never seen this movie. I have been meaning to for a long time but for some reason always found something else to watch instead. Anyway, it is time for a review.
We follow three friends Seth, Evan and Fogell who are all after one thing, to get laid after they leave high school. Fogell manages to get himself a fake ID and after bragging about it to his friends he ends up having to buy alcohol for a party. Seth and Evan both think they have got chances with girls and offer to buy their alcohol for them as well. While waiting outside for Fogell, Seth gets hit by a car and that is when the whole night becomes on big adventure for the three lads.
The basics behind the story is exactly the same as just about any other high school movie revolving around lads but that doesn’t mean it is not enjoyable to watch. After Seth gets ran over things start getting weird for the boys which makes you want to watch and find out what is going to happen next to Seth and Evans. Not only that but while buying the alcohol things start getting weird for Fogell as well which ends up with him being in the back of a police car.
I was told by many different people that this movie is the funniest ever and is in a lot of peoples top 5 favourites. For me personally, I think the movie is hilarious with numerous different funny scenes and the acting from both Jonah Hill and Michael Cera making each scene funnier than the last, Christopher Mintz did an okay job but his character just made every scene awkward and cringe. I know that a lot of people like this in these sort of movies but me personally I end up feeling like I don’t want to watch anymore.
The acting is surprisingly good, of course Michael Cera does what he seems to do in just about every movie I have seen him in which is being that awkward boy in just about every single social situation he seems to land himself in. Jonah Hill is still one of the greatest comedic actors I have seen and seeing something from him when he was 24 just seems to add to that factor. Christopher Mintz is an actor I have mixed feelings on as he seems to do this sort of acting very well with making everything awkward but at the same time it is because of this that makes me hate him.
The best way I am able to describe this movie is imagine American Pie but without all the naked parts and you are on the same sort of track. I do like this movie and I am glad I finally got around to watching it and look forward to whenever I watch it again. I’ve been Aaron Morrsi and I’ll see you next time.
