This movie is a story about a completely unlikeable hero. Ronnie's a absolute loser, and while I didn't at all care what happened to Ronnie, I could not look away from his self-piloted destructive path. Every character in this movie is seriously flawed in a completely believable way.
I laughed out loud several times during out of total embarrassment on Ronnie's behalf. Ronnie completely humiliates himself in front of everyone he tries to impress and emulate. This is certainly a different character for the fun-loving stoner that Rogan usually plays, Ronnie is a bipolar, angry, delusional young man. If you don't think people with mental illnesses are funny, than this is not the movie for you. The other reviewers are right, it is not a traditional Seth Rogan romcom. Seth Rogan actually attempts to ACT in this one, which could be why his die-hard fanbase does not enjoy it. This is hands-down my favourite Seth Rogan movie, because he's not even in it (at long last, his CHARACTER is)... the support cast is 70% of the entertainment (yes, there are OTHER PEOPLE in this movie), his liquored up mother, pathetic gun-toting co-workers, his perverted nemesis (one of them, of course a bipolar paranoid would have several of them) who Ronnie thinks is there to blow up the Chick Fil-A. And last, but not least Anna Faris is fantastic as the skanky, self-important make up girl who will screw anything for a depressant or stimulant.
TWO THUMBS UP FOR AWKWARD LOSERS!!! I bought this movie, and watched it probably 20 times!
