I watched this last night (rented copy) and as much as I wanted to hate it I ended up liking it a lot. Now I want to buy the DVD. Here's the question:

There is an unrated collectors edition that is 229 minutes. The one I watched was 118 minutes (unrated). Which one do you recommend and why?

I don't like him either, but I have to admit he was just great in this movie.

It was a very good movie. I watched the UNRATED version (Netflix). You DO NOT want the UNRATED version unless you want to see Jason Segal's dick a 1000 times. I was thinking UNRATED = nude Mila Kunis - WRONG! :doh!:

My wife liked it, however.

I actually was about to quit watching after the early scenes generous with Jason Segel's genitals. Thought the whole movie was gonna be like that. Luckily it wasn't and the movie actually became good (IMO).

There was more than enough in the 118 minute version's early scenes. If the 225 minute one is just more of that, then no thanks.

I don't know, I was just shocked that it was shown that much - period! I guess I assumed it was only in the unrated version. Movies are like radio - getting away with more and more. My wife was saying gee it is like they are intentionally showing it! Again my thoughts were cool we are getting this shit out of the way to make room for the Mila Kunis show! NOT! :cuss:

The movie was okay. Nothing special. The thing I hate about all those Apatow films is he and his band of geeks NEED to work on editing. Comedies shouldnt run THAT long and his type of films go on forever and ever. We get it! You guys love to improv!

Forgetting Sarah Marshall just beats out Pineapple Express as my favorite comedy of 2008 (having not yet seen Zack & Miri or Role Models).

I was really impressed with Mila Kunis' performance in this flick.

My comedy rankings this year:


Role Models
Burn After Reading
Forgetting Sarah Marhall
Pineapple Express
Tropic Thunder
Be Kind Rewind
Step Brothers
Get Smart
Baby Mama


There's something of a dropoff after Be Kind Rewind. Step Brothers was okay, Get Smart was iffy but it grew on me, and Baby Mama was just not good (as much as I like Tina Fey).

Keep in mind these are all of the comedies I saw this year, so it's not like I consider them all to be Top 10 movies.

The theatrical release was 112 minutes long.

The unrated DVD release was 117 minutes long.

There "might" be 229 total minutes, if this set comes with both the unrated and theatrical release but there's not a version out there that 229 minutes long.

FWIW, I liked it but not as much as Superbad or 40 Year-Old Virgin. More than Knocked Up for sure.

and I really enjoyed sarah marshall.

while we're talking comedies of 2008, I have to bring up 'sex drive'

highly underrated. I went in with very low expectations (only saw it because it was in the dollar theatre, and I was bored)--it was fucking HILARIOUS--it has to go in my top three of the year.

my list:
1. step brothers
2. zack and miri make a porno
3. sex drive
4. forgetting sarah marshall
5. pineapple express
6. tropic thunder
7. get smart
8. role models (not high enough, but it's hard to top anything but get smart. I didn't like this as much as the rest, but I DID enjoy it)

some are too close to really rate--I love comedies, and watch a LOT of them... 1-5 are interchangeable, depending on my mood.

I haven't heard much about that one. I'll check it out.

We have similar tastes in comedy.

I disagree about Step Brothers, but as I said, I didn't finish it... so that's not really fair.

Zach and Miri, though... we agree on that.

I'm a huge Kevin Smith geek... add a little Seth Rogan, and you've got genious. (CPS)

I love will ferrell's stuff--- he and john c. reilly have great chemistry, and you can really tell it from step brothers... what I loved about step brothers was how fucked up and shocking it really was--it's almost like they wrote the movie (ferrell and reilly, iirc) for a few fifteen year olds, and then, at the last possible moment, decided that THEY should star in the movie. all of the lines wouldn't really shock you from a fifteen year old with filthy language--when they come from a 40 year old man who still lives at home, they're fucking GOLD

His standup is excellent, something about it just pulls laughs out of you even when the material is retread/hacky.
He's also a great guest on Graham Norton, in the realm of Lauren Graham on Conan, or Rickles on Carson.

It's comedy, even conceptually, the idea of a guy so distraught by a sudden breakup that he can't think to put on any clothes for several minutes is funny.

I'll preface this by saying I love Kevin Smith movies and I love Seth Rogan and pretty much every movie he's been in since 40 Year Old Virgin made him famous...

Just watched Zack and Miri...didn't like it. Didn't think it was funny...I mean, I didn't think it was awful or anything like that, it was just boring and I was counting down the minutes until it was over. Laughed once only because I was kind of shocked...(the frosting scene)...but yeah, won't recommend that one to friends and doubt I ever watch it again.

Carry on...

my post was a joke, really.

and I've kinda noticed something since kevin smith got married--it's said that the artist/director generally writes/directs about what's going on in his/her life... and while there weren't ever any rubber poop monsters in kevin's life, since he's gotten married/settled down, his movies are less stoner/dick/fart jokes and more romantic comedy--the old me (pre married, high school me) would've blanched at kevin's transformation--but since I've settled down as well, I can really appreciate the transition that's come obviously to his life to lead to the movies he's put out the last few year (I LOVED jersey girl, but a lot of people hated it--).

anyway. sappy shit over.

It's not high action, but it IS a different take on the issue of terrorism. It has enough twist to keep you watching, but it really is a morality play of sorts.
