Watching this without having got stoned first is like watching a 3D movie without the special glasses. There are a few moderate laughs (and a nice Jude Law gag) but the full-on gory violence is disconcerting and unfunny.
I've enjoyed the movies Superbad, Knocked Up, and 40 yr old virgin. I already knew this movie was gonna be good because Seth Rogan is in it and like I expected.......it was awesome! This movie had me laughing from start to finish. I would definetly recommend this movie it is hilarious.
It is well meant, undoubtedly about something that matters, and it bends over backwards not to trash the teachers' unions gratuitously, but amid the attempts at gritty reality, I found the happy-ending imperative unconvincing.
