Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Hitting theaters this weekend is Observe and Report, the follow-up comedy from The Foot Fist Way director Jody Hill. The movie is about as shocking, crazy, and funny, as anything can ever get, but not everyone may have enjoyed it. We've seen a lot of good comedies recently, so how does Observe and Report stack up? Was Seth Rogen able to break out of his norm this time? Was the story too dark and unfunny? Or was it better that way, with a few unexpected twists and turns? Sound off below, leave your thoughts, and let us know what you thought of Observe and Report!
To fuel the fire, I thought Observe and Report was frickin' awesome, despite what all the stuck up critics have been saying about it. It was easily the craziest movie I've seen in a long time, which admittedly can be both good and bad. Jody Hill threw in everything he could to make this as over-the-top and insane as any mall cop comedy ever could be, and I loved it for that. I wasn't turned off by the fact that it was a lot darker and a lot less comical than the trailer made it out to be, especially because I love some originality. And how about that crazy freakin' ending?! For that alone, this deserves endless amounts of praise in my book!
So what did you think of Observe and Report? A comedy classic or a pile of comedic crap?
