Dave Skylark and his producer Aaron Rapaport run the celebrity tabloid show "Skylark Tonight". When they land an interview with a surprise fan, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, they are recruited by the CIA to assassinate him.
When their new next-door neighbors turn out to be a sorority even more debaucherous than the fraternity previously living there, Mac and Kelly team with their former enemy, Teddy, to bring the girls down.
Lifelong platonic friends Zack and Miri look to solve their respective cash-flow problems by making an adult film together. As the cameras roll, however, the duo begin to sense that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.
Ethan (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), Isaac (Seth Rogen) and Chris (Anthony Mackie) have been friends since childhood, and for a decade, their yearly Christmas Eve reunion has been an annual night of debauchery and hilarity. Now that they're entering adulthood, the tradition is coming to an end, and to make it as memorable as possible, they set out to find the Nutcracka Ball - the Holy Grail of Christmas parties.Written by

Molotov of Druggery and Mazel-Tovely Awesome good time
When I was a teen I warned everyone I knew to look after their relationships: parents, siblings, children, lovers, and especially friends. Nothing in this life lasts forever. The only constant - is CHANGE. Blah blah blah.
People move on with their own agendas and perceived roles in their lives and this puts a great strain on previous interactions that we often take for granted after our formative educational years. Friendships are usually the most likely things to suffer, fade, and disappear once people grow up. This movie is a fun , veiled tale of what we ALL must go through with regards to those changes ,and I sympathize with it, fore tis a central part of the human condition.
There's laughs, spills, not too many thrills, or chills, though for a xmas movie, thats just mein penchant for terrible har har making. But some people do these types of things, no gender analysis needed to ruin a good time. HOWEVER...
The film will of course appeal a tad more to the male perspective, but honestly when you look beyond Seth Rogan's ever intentionally placed molotov of druggery and mazel tovly awesome beard, and the strangely balding J G Levitt and their mysterious drug dealer associate, we remember that we all go through the same things, regardless of our individual attitudes, perspectives and the colors they take on. A good "holy" season watch when your bored and want some entertainment. Seasons Greetings and keep your heat beating.
