Penises, So many, slow-motion penises.
But that didn’t ruin this film!
If you like the The Office, 30 Rock and Archer, you will get a kick out of this film. I feel like I haven’t laughed this much since I saw 21 Jump Street (which is a really good film, btw). Sure, I had a glass of wine in me, which I’m sure helped suppress the annoying film critic in me, but still. Very. Enjoyable.
Jennifer Aniston isn’t her usual stuffy self. Paul Rudd is charming as always. It’s like he is just having so much fun on set of the each film he is on and it radiates across the screen. They also have “OK” chemistry. I don’t think someone like Rudd would go for someone as crabby as Aniston, but still, they look great as an on-screen couple.
They are the usual, yuppy DINKS (double income, no kids) who feel like they are stunted in their lives after Rudd loses his job and Aniston has still not found a career. They happen apon this commune-esque oasis in the backwoods of Georgia, this is when they meet the nudist, the kooky landlord, the all of the almost brain-washed people of the commune. Thus antics ensue because nothing good comes from forcing the fish that is already out of the water, to start walking on it’s fins.
My favorite character is the alcoholic, depressed sister in-law, played by Michaela Watkins. She’s only in the film for a max of 15 minutes, but she’s the kind of character that makes you remember just her after the film is done.
There are many jokes that I caught but the makers of this film didn’t hit you over the head with the jokes. They treat their audience like they are smart and can catch everything that is going on. YAY! As someone who is smart, I appreciate this.
There are some “REALLY?!” moments where the characters do stupid crap, but just go with the flow, that will be over soon.
Yes, there are a lot of old man penis – but just fast-forward through those parts and enjoy the movie!
