Seth Rogen is one of those actors who who seems like he might have sprouted fully formed from a movie like Slacker. He’s actually Canadian, but his comedic tendencies seem to have evolved from a similar worldview as the Austin fringe thinkers.
After a week off, Trevan, Eric and Trey are back with three movies for your listening pleasure.
Because This is the End has transplanted the egotistical and childish behavior normally reserved for Team Apatow’s lovable manchild characters onto the actors themselves, it feels dangerous.
Can the film help but force us to recall the Trayvon Martin case, and if it can’t, does that keep us from being able to laugh? No. The Watch doesn’t have that problem, but that doesn’t mean it’s loaded to the gills with gold-star jokes to begin with.
Maybe it’s a little early to call ‘Goon’ overlooked, but considering the movie came out in January and has been available on-demand for even longer grants it early access to this column.
