Written by Steve Carell and Judd Apatow, the film also stars Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen as Steve Carell’s co-workers. The run time is 116 minutes and is rated R for pervasive sexual content, language, and some drug use. This movie was a lot funnier than I expected it to be. Carell was very convincing as Andy, and Rogen was great as the stoner co-worker.
This is a great date movie but only with someone who is comfortable with lots and lots of sexual dialogue. If you go to this movie on a first date, expect to be uncomfortable for the rest of the night. Luckily, not all of the humor stems from the movie’s vulgarity. The writers do a good job of keeping Carell’s character human by showing us that Andy is a fairly normal guy who has been on a long losing streak.
