So Paul Rudd is attending the wedding of a showbiz friend (not an actor). And near the end of the reception they show the guests giving their good wishes on a giant videoscreen, and Rudd comes on in closeup sincerely blathering "You're beautiful, I know you'll build a loving home" etc. The camera gradually pulls back to reveal that he's whacking off in a toilet stall.

The mother of the bride requests he be ejected immediately, and as he is escorted out by 2 or 3 guys, Rudd waves and shouts "I love you all!"

Between WHAS and 40YOV for me, but I had to give the nod to the latter for Rudd's freakout in the electronics store with the handheld cam. Genius.

Couldn't decide ---> comedy vote for 200 Cigarettes

nabisco, Thursday, 14 June 2007 18:02 (7 years ago) Permalink

That would have been a comedy vote for The Baxter, in which someone clearly told him "I dunno, just, like, be Paul Ruddy, do a funny dance or something," and so he's totally like weekend-off autopilot Ruddy, but HMM NO OPTION

nabisco, Thursday, 14 June 2007 18:03 (7 years ago) Permalink

the real comedy vote is for the jen aniston movie where he plays a sweetheart fag

Our Idiot Brother would've been great, if it hadn't had the "happy ending for everyone" Hollywood ending. It was still okay (and Rudd was indeed endearing in it), but it was no Role Models.

Tuomas as Francesca Fiore and Bruno Pontz Jones in a Kids In The Hall sketch: "They would never kill hero in American movie, ah? No. With them, it's always the happy ending. Always the football player throw the ball for the big win, ah? Yes. Always the puppy, licking the face."

I saw Our Idiot Brother last night and it was pretty nice (the "slight" assessment above is in the right direction though, but I don think that's a real problem)but that end scene where they talked about the candle recycling is one of the funniest things I've seen in a comedy film in years.

Robert Adam Gilmour, Monday, 2 June 2014 19:13 (3 months ago) Permalink

Tuomas, I'd say Role Models suffered worse for the forced happy ending.

Robert Adam Gilmour, Monday, 2 June 2014 19:15 (3 months ago) Permalink

"just a couple of guys and a dog makin' candles"
"what a cliche!"

take a load off, Whiney, and and aaaand you put the load right on me (some dude), Monday, 2 June 2014 19:25 (3 months ago) Permalink

In Role Models the happy endings felt organic,because the stories culminated with them, the whole movie was about earning those happy endings. Whereas in Our Idiot Brother the happy endings felt more tacked-on, something that had to be included because (according to the cliche) no story can end on an ambiguous or open note. (I'm not talking about the candle-making thing, that was fine, but was it really necessary to introduce a new love interest for the protagonist literally in the last scene? That was totally deus ex machina.)

Tuomas, Tuesday, 3 June 2014 11:40 (3 months ago) Permalink

No, the new love interest was not necessary and it was too neat for my liking (I also seen In A World recently and it was another slightly unusual comedy that had a forced crowdpleaser end it really didn't need) but surely the line in Role Models "when I get out of jail can I play with your 9 year old son?" (can't remember the exact line) underlined in a wink to the audience how unbelievable the resolution was.

I'd imagine that all three films had some of these things imposed on them.

Robert Adam Gilmour, Tuesday, 3 June 2014 11:56 (3 months ago) Permalink

I mean... these were light-hearted movies full of likable actors playing likable (if flawed) characters finding themselves in mild peril to comedic effect. If you can't handle movies like that ending on an up note then I don't even know...

take a load off, Whiney, and and aaaand you put the load right on me (some dude), Tuesday, 3 June 2014 12:40 (3 months ago) Permalink

It isn't the up note that bothers us, it's the contrived forced events that weaken the whole thing.
