2.0 out of 5 stars mercifully short March 7 2010
By falcon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
i don't see the appeal of this movie.apparently it's part comedy,but i guess i didn't get the memo about that,because i didn't find it funny.check that.i did actually laugh out loud once.but i forgot exactly what it was i laughed about before the movie was over.so there there are no real laughs.there is however an abundance of crude language,and there's even some full frontal nudity,if that's what floats your boat,though i'm not saying these are good things.for me,the characters are mostly unsympathetic and shallow and inspire nothing more than indifference towards them.the only decent character in the whole bunch has very little screen time.there are a few things that keep it from being a complete wash.the main character has one or two scenes in which he actually seems like he could almost be a decent human being.there's also good action sequence in the earlier stages of the movie,and it isn't boring.best of all though,it's mercifully short,at less than ninety minutes,even with the end credits.for me,Observe and Report is a 2/5

2.0 out of 5 stars Another Rogen Disappointment Oct. 26 2009
Calling something a "black comedy" doesn't make it good. It makes it a black comedy. There is a such thing as bad black comedies, and Observe and Report is one of them. It suffers from a poor script and a blase direction style. That's why its reviews have been from bad to mixed, universally.

Normally I'm quite the fan of Seth Rogen going back to the classic shoulda-been, Freaks & Geeks. Having said that, I knew that Observe & Report was not going to be like his other films (which is fine). The problem is that Observe & Report doesn't know how to be a successful black comedy. It tries to ride that fine line between drama and comedy (that's the trick), with a big-name comedic star. This has been done previously with a personal favourite of mine, Punch-Drunk Love (also a black comedy). Observe and Report lacks that films' emotion and innovation, and doesn't really go anywhere.

The story is far from original, or engagin: Ronnie (Rogen) is a bipolar mall cop who dreams of being a real cop. Ray Liotta is a real cop who resents Ronnie. That's a pretty far from original setup. Ronnie tries to prove himself, repeatedly, and fails. Eventually he redeems himself, but not before the audience is treated to some unnessesary full frontal male nudity ad nauseum courtesy of the film's resident flasher. Which of course is a cheap comedy trick, not a black comedy trick.

Part of the problem with this movie is that Rogen's character just lacks charisma. You're never really rooting for him during the entire course of the movie. You see his mistakes coming for miles, like a freight train in the night. Yet he steers right into those mistakes, and when they happen you just feel like saying, "Well, I saw that coming...
