Storyline

Will (Glenn Howerton) is a 30-something website manager who uses local café, Coffee Town, as his office. When the owners of the shop discuss plans to convert Coffee Town into a bar, Will enlists the help of his two best friends Chad and Gino (Steve Little and Ben Schwartz) to save his freeloading existence. In order to thwart the plans of Coffee Town's owners, the trio stages a robbery to create the illusion of an unsafe neighborhood not suitable for the proposed venue. Also standing in their way is Sam (Josh Groban), a disgruntled barista with delusions of grandeur-he wants to be a rock star-and Will's heartache over unrequited love for Becca (Adrianne Palicki).

Wow, what a surprise!
11 July 2013 | by JehosaphetSee all my reviews

This is one of those films that grabbed me right off the bat with it's true-to-life dialogue and immensely fun detailing of the small but hilarious things we all experience in daily life but have never taken the time to put into words. It's the movie version of GOOD stand-up comedy, and while I'm not much of a reviewer, I wasn't ten minutes into this before I felt an insatiable obligation to share the pleasure with someone. Which seems like a natural sentiment considering how much charm this movie derives from its relatability.

The plot is simple enough and seems sufficiently outlined in IMDb's summary, so I won't repeat it here. Note: For fans of, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia", Glenn Howerton brilliantly deadpans the same type of semi-sociopath we've grown to...love to laugh and shake our heads at. He makes this film a treat.

But what makes this movie truly engaging is its ability to produce a seemingly nonstop stream of jokes so personally relevant to the viewer and our daily lives, as to make one feel as if they're just as much of an insider to the humor as they are a witness. The dialogue's pace is its other strong suit. An off-hand remark may be overlooked by the characters as their attention is diverted elsewhere (along with the viewers') and and may have you intermittently wishing for a pause button in order to better relish just how funny these gems are. But by maintaining its momentum, the movie is allowing the viewer to catch some of these fastballs themselves, which of course, makes them that much more enjoyable.

I'd compare its pacing with that of NBC's 30 Rock, but by replacing Rock's off-brand style of quirky jokes with the off-beat dialogue of a quirky character? The increase in humor just explodes exponentially. Really, this movie is THAT funny. If you're anything like me and not generally a laugh out loud type of person when it comes to cinema, I'll bet you'll find yourself coming out of this feeling like I did...that you really didn't have much of a choice in the matter!

Many Kudos to CollegeHumor for that rare comedy that you'll probably want to watch again immediately after your first viewing so as to be better prepared for the onslaught of funny.
