Role Models

THEY’RE ABOUT TO GET MORE THAN THEY PLEA-BARGAINED FOR.

Wheeler and Danny (Seann William Scott, Paul Rudd) are sentenced to community service and join a network of big brothers; their chosen prot√©g√©s pose very different challenges. A comedy in the vein of Judd Apatow’s work, with a couple of thirtysomethings waiting to grow as human beings. Apatow regulars Rudd, Elizabeth Banks and Christopher Mintz-Plasse make appearances and there’s plenty of the expected R-rated fun. The two stars deliver familiar performances; hardly character actors, they are nevertheless entertaining. Very thin story but sweet and funny, with a terrific performance by Jane Lynch as a reformed cokehead.

2008-U.S.-Germany. 99 min. Color. Directed by¬†David Wain. Screenplay: Paul Rudd, David Wain, Ken Marino, Timothy Dowling. Cast: Seann William Scott (Wheeler), Paul Rudd (Danny Donahue), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Augie Farks), Bobb’e J. Thompson, Elizabeth Banks, Jane Lynch.

Trivia: The fictional Wings song played over the end credits is performed by a Paul McCartney impersonator.
