Though i'll admit i did find myself laughing at a fair few moments, they weren't as side splitting as i had heard and hoped for. for weeks every teenage dominated channel, magazine and website had trailers or reviews or blogs about this being an instant classic and the funniest film in the last 20 years and so on...
Credit where credits due, the films is packed with heart and reality, the uncomfort of true situations, the adaptations of your failed saturday, amd i won't say... TOO MUCH HAPPENED, coz its a film... the characters are sweet, they are your typical american geek virgins (McLovin fitting the stereotype best) with the spots and the bad hair.
The chemistry felt genuine and the it really does seem they've been best friends forever... however, far to often this film felt like it was trying to hard to hit two different zones of comedy, the deadpan uncomfortable silences and improvised real life dialouge with the over the top wacky fast one liners (and yes i know real life can be both) but at times it seemed a little forced.
The negatives, the police to me had moments but seemed to just take you on a scenic route of the story and get lost somewhere and the sat nav lost power with no light for map reading. but like i say they have some moments.
the story is a run of the mill underdog story about best friends wanting to get some booty, but choose the girls out of there league, with the promise of beer they suddenly become an assest to the final party with a chain of crazy events in the build up to the party and more at the party itself, its through this crazy night the friends learn more about themselves and each other than they had anticipated.
Jonah Hill (accepted, evan almighty) seems to be type casted and getting into a rut of doing the same thing each and everytime hes on screen, BUT he is good at it, and while young he still has time to change.
overall this film was less about sex and more about the friends we love and lose during school....
a good film, but nothing more.
