So funny!

Me and my dad and little sister watched this, I am 14 she is 12 and we loved it! It’s a good thing to watch, it shows kids what not to do when growing old! It was so funny we laughed at every word

Buddy comedy has inspired moments

Russell Brand's character in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" was one of the film's highlights. So it was a pretty good idea to do a little spin off with him and a reincarnated Jonah Hill, playing a totally different role. While we have seen a lot of this stuff before (do you really think he's not going to get to the Greek?) but Hill's nerd makes you root for him (plus he gets in some great physical comedy) and Russell Brand was kind of born to play Aldous Snow, after harnessing that character's potential in "Sarah Marshall." This is surely an adult comedy, endless language, some sex scenes (a really, really bizarre one, I'll just say it involves three people) and drug content, all for comedic effect. Marathon this back to back with "FSM" and you'll have a fun, lighthearted Apatow-flavored afternoon.
