Three buddies wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no memory of the previous night and the bachelor missing. They make their way around the city in order to find their friend before his wedding.
A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the last Twinkie, and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America.
Seth and Evan are best friends, inseparable, navigating the last weeks of high school. Usually shunned by the popular kids, Seth and Evan luck into an invitation to a party, and spend a long day, with the help of their nerdy friend Fogell, trying to score enough alcohol to lubricate the party and inebriate two girls, Jules and Becca, so they can kick-start their sex lives and go off to college with a summer full of experience and new skills. Their quest is complicated by Fogell's falling in with two inept cops who both slow and assist the plan. If they do get the liquor to the party, what then? Is sex the only rite of passage at hand?

The pivotal penis drawings were a 'bone' of contention with the MPAA, particularly the scene with young Becca holding an image of one of them. Producer Judd Apatow elaborated it was the subject of much legal wrangling, including how erect they could be, if veins could be shown etc. The actress playing young Becca, Laura Marano, however has a different picture to hold before they cut to the actual drawing. You can even see from the reverse that the drawing she holds appears completely different. See more »
When Evan is at the first party and the six men enter the room to smoke or do cocaine, the man in the blue track jacket notices Evan in the corner and asks, "Who's that guy?" At that time he is holding a vodka bottle in his left hand and points at Evan with his right hand, which is holding a cigarette. In the next frame, when everyone turns to look at Evan, the cigarette is now in the man's left hand, and his right hand is empty. Also, the bearded man in the white hat appears to be missing the cigarette that he was just lighting seconds before. See more »

I got to see an advanced screening the other night, complete with an interview with the cast. I figured this movie could go either way, especially when you consider "40 year-old Virgin" and "Knocked Up" were funny and entertaining, but they weren't exactly loved by all.
I am happy to say this movie was wonderful. The jokes are crude, but dead on, and unlike recent movies with a similar style, like "Clerks 2," the plot moves on without any real downtime (you know, where the plot slows the progress of humor and you find yourself checking your watch). Jonah Hill and Michael Cera have that best friend chemistry that this movie required as well as being dead on with their jokes. The real star of the movie, however, was newcomer Christopher Mintz-Plasse, who took the role of Fogell and OWNED it. I got the chance to chat with the actors and I was not only surprised to hear that both Mintz-Plasse and Michael Cera are 18 and 19 respectively.
For the type of movie this is and the brilliant script that Seth Brogen has presented, there is no reason why anyone, young or old, can't relate to this off-the-wall comedy. See this movie!
